Default Moving files to new drive

Hi, all.

I just bought a bigger drive and I have to transfer my data volume. What I want is to maintain all of NTFS and sharing permissions. Is it okay if I use NTBackup? I'm not sure if I'll have problems with it.

Any suggestions?

we use this a lot to back up all our servers to an array where we then back up to tape its power is in the fact it can copy open files as well

Yea you want to clone the drive. I believe ghost has a USB key version of it now very small dos package which clones the whole drive and permissions. Great for storage upgrades. Just make sure you clone on the same computer your going to attach the new drive to.
