    robocopy you can tell it to keep all the permissions etc (i think the GUI has to be downloaded seperately, or you can use it command line, been ages since i last used it)

    backup then restore is the method i tend to use - its pretty simple to do and works

    Robocopy
    Vote 2 for robocopy. Copied over 300Gb of a shared area across to a new server whilst retaining permissions.
