    Migrating some profile data so 2003 to 2008, no problemo good old robocopy with a load of switches works great.

    Tried it 2008 to 2008 and got an error message I'd not seen before: 'You do not have the Backup and Restore Files user rights'. After some head scratching I thought, surely not...... yep, you have to run robocopy as Administrator! What's the world coming too eh Even with UAC turned off you always have to select the run as admin option. Probably have to run as admin to open a folder next....... rant over, Jim

    Yup, its a pain in the a$$.

    Best to right click cmd.exe and run as administrator when you can :)

    I should know better mate but because we're predominately 2003 every now and then I assume that the OS will trust me to do my job, how foolish ha ha

    Yeah, it may come off as a bit strange, but it's the Microsoft answer to sudo'ing your way through tasks that require more rights to be performed.

    I've almost made a habit of running most setups and tasks with a right-click Administrator because they're likely to fail otherwise... which kind of defeats the purpose then as one might end up doing this with a trojan :\

    Absolutely mate I'm sure it has the best possible intentions but I like the way if you use sudo you can stay at that level, which is what MS should adopt in IMHO. Yeah ask me for my credentials again but once accepted give me even an hour where I don't have to repeat myself. I suppose its much harder than that to implement. We'll see what they come up with for what I'm guessing will be called Server 2012?

    OK so I'll be the first to admit when I'm wrong....... I'm starting to warm to 2008. Today I had the typical ticket, not enough info regarding problems with shares. I stumbled across the search feature in DFS because I've started using one of the 2008 TS's instead of the 2003. Very impressed and what I've always felt was needed because not only can I search for a DFS path or part of it, I can stick in a server and see all the DFS links to that server. Good on ya MS. My 2008 upgrade exams and studies are definitely back on the cards after a few weeks of stumbling :)
