Transferring Files

I need to transfer user files from a WinNT server to a Win2K server. Is there away of doing this and keeping the permissions? There are hundreds of folders and I don't want to go to each folder and reset the security permissions.

Scopy.exe from the resource kit will tranfer files between NT and 2000 and keep permissions, as long as both partitions are NTFS.

Thanks for the info. I couldn't find this command on the Win2K resource kit though. But as I said, I think the XCOPY command will do it.

According to a recent article I read on Tech Republic, if you do a backup of the NT files and do a restore on Windows 2000 and as long as the NT server has service pack 4 or later, it will retain all permissions

Thanks for the info. This seems more complicated than it needs to be. MS Knowledge Base Article 323007 has the answer that I think will work for me.
