    Hi all,

    We have got 2 servers (old & new) under a domain. It was decided that some of the data & ACL from old server should be transfered to a new server. Both are on Win 2000 and has been setted up and up and running. Old server (ServerA) has a drive with 6 partations and a cople of Map Drives on it. Server has a drive with two partations (C & D).

    To be honest, I don't know how to transfer data & ACL's and file permissions in tact to a new server (ServerB). I was advised to use NTBackup and when I looked around I found that xcopy and robocopy are available for the job.

    We are a school and are on Folder Redirection environment. Also ACLs are server based rather than domain based so I also want to make sure that there is no problems when staff & pulpils come back and access to their files, even though both servers have different name.

    Since the whole thing is completely beyond me, I would really appreciate if someone can help/guide/advise me through this.

    Thanks in advances
