f our projects after moving servers will be to clean up permissions and remove the full control.
I used robocopy a year or so ago to do just this. There is an option in robocopy that allows robocopy to run as the backup service to copy the data to the new location. This solve any issues I had with my admin account not having access to files on the volume I was moving.
robocopy /b = backup mode (if you don't have permissions, restart the copy of that file using the backup account)
The backup mode parameter worked like a champ. Thanks again for the help.
So how is a Mac involved here? It seems like you are trying to do a Windows to Windows copy, no Mac in the process?
Correct. It seems that a Mac unzipped the files to the windows server. There was a bug at the time that set the file type bit to something that makes windows think it's encrypted. (thus windows shows it as green and the encrypted check box is checked)
All I'm trying to do now is copy the files from a server that is having issues to a new server.
Where are you running the copy operation from? The new server or the server with issues?
I'd suggest trying to run the copy FROM the server with issues.
