Moving shares between servers, maintain security

1. On the the source server: START > RUN > REGEDT32
2. Go to the key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Services/LanmanServer/Shares

3. From the Registry menu, select Export Registry file.
4. Copy the file to the target server
5. On the target server: START > RUN > Name of the exported registry file> OK
6. Reboot the target server

If any of the local paths of the shares change (for example, E:\Data to F:\Data), the locations can be edited in Share Management on the target server.

Then use Robocopy to transfer the files from old to new share and maintain file/folder permissions!
