    There's always XCOPY which will do this

    Xcopy doesn't keep permissions AFIK Robocopy does - and works well.

    GUI Version Here

    2003 Resource Kit which contains Robocopy. Vista has it as standard.

    Re: share migration tool

    Hi,

    I'm watching this thread ith interest because we have got to migrate data from local disks to SAN and need to keep the shares, permissions and also the files.

    The SAN will deliver basic disks to servers but what i need to do is to copy the files from the current drives to these basic drives that we will be using from now on. My plan is to :

    1) Restore the data using veritas backup to these basic disks (SAN)

    2)Manually create the approprite shares

    3) Use permcopy to copy the share permissions

    4) Change old drive letters to different letters

    5) Rename the new (SAN) drives to the correct drive letter

    Any thoughts as to what may go wrong??

    Plan B:

    1) Copy data using robocopy from old drives to new ones

    2) manually create the appropriate shares

    3) Use permcopy to copy the share permissions

    4) Change old drive letters to different letters

    5) Rename the new (SAN) drives to the correct drive letter


    any thought, suggestions welcome.

    Ash.
