    Hello I am trying to find out the best course of action. I need to move files from a server that has 2003 to a server that has 2008, I need to move all the files over from the old server to the new server along with the permissions. I don't want to make a mistake on the new server, the tool I will be using is backup exec 2012. Can anyone advise on what the best course of action would be to do this?
    It was suggested that I use Backupexec 2012 backup the older server SDDATA6 to a hard drive with the permissions in the registry then restore to the new server.

    Permissions to individual files are retained in an NTFS environment, but if we are talking about Shares on a File Server, you need to do a migration, not a backup.
