Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I need to decommission a file server which is the target of a folder redirection GPO.

I used the instructions in Mark Minasi's Server2003 book to setup the original share.

I would like to copy the whole folder to a new server and know that I did it right from a security standpoint.

XCOPY will copy ACLs, too. Use the "/X" switch and you'll get the DACLs, ownership information, and SACLs. –  Evan Anderson Aug 17 '10 at 21:07
