So I have a 2003 server and a 2008 R2 server, and I want to copy a bunch of folders from my file share from 2003>2008R2. What is the best way to do this and maintain the folder permissions, since I have several that all have different users who have access to them?

thanks!

robocopy and registry export for the share permissions.

Robocopy has the /COPYALL option for maintaining the permissions.

I think PowerShell 3 introduced a cmdlet for managing shares. Might be worth looking into as well.
