    Another case of misinformation and lack of support from Microsoft. At, it specifically states: “The File Server Migration Toolkit contains two step-by-step wizards that helps administrators migrate existing file servers to Windows Server 2008 R2 in an easier fashion and less error prone. FSMT can be used to migrate from Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows 2003 R2, Windows 2008 to a new Windows Server 2008 R2 server.”

    But the whitepaper does not mention Windows 2000 and when launching the utility on a Windows 2000 server it states: “Microsoft File Server Migration Toolkit is not supported on this version of Windows.”

    FSMT itself feels complex and I never remember the full form of it! Windows file migration tool looks like a very complex task. My friend suggested me a software called GS Richcopy, its a paid software but it it affordable and provides overwhelming features like pre scheduled file transfer, email notification when task is done. This software is much better than any other software that I have used till date. Try it hope it helps!

    The transfer speed is quite low. I can’t imagine how much time will it take to transfer TB’s of data. I have used this software but I didn’t found it satisfying that’s why I switched to a reliable and effective one. I used GS Richcopy 360. Its simple to use, provides lots of features like long path name support which is necessary when copying huge files, copying locked files, multi threaded file transfer for fast transfer speed, pre scheduled file transfer, email notification when task is done and many more. Try it hope it helps!
