If you are looking for a reliable and efficient solution to migrate your file servers, NAS systems, or cloud storage, you might want to consider Sys-Manage CopyRight2. This software lets you easily copy network file shares, files, folders, NTFS permissions, share permissions, groups and user accounts (including passwords) from source to destination server, NAS storage solution or the cloud[^1^].
In this article, we will show you how to use Sys-Manage CopyRight2 to migrate your data and accounts with minimal downtime and hassle.
Step 1: Download and install Sys-Manage CopyRight2
You can download a free trial version of Sys-Manage CopyRight2 from their website[^1^]. The trial version is fully functional for 30 days and allows you to migrate up to 1000 files per run. To purchase a license, you can either buy it online from their store or request a quote from their resellers.
After downloading the software, run the setup file and follow the instructions to install it on your source and target servers. You will need administrative privileges on both servers to install and run the software.
Step 2: Configure your migration project
Launch Sys-Manage CopyRight2 on your source server and click on \"New Project\" to create a new migration project. You will see a wizard that guides you through the configuration process. You can also use the \"Edit Project\" option to modify an existing project.
The wizard consists of several steps where you can specify the following settings:
The source and target servers or NAS systems. You can also choose to migrate to or from the cloud using Amazon S3, Azure Blob Storage, or Google Cloud Storage.
The file shares, files, folders, NTFS permissions, share permissions, groups and user accounts that you want to migrate. You can use filters to exclude or include specific items based on various criteria.
The options for copying data and accounts. You can choose to copy only new or modified files, preserve timestamps and attributes, verify data integrity using checksums or hashes, use compression or encryption, etc.
The options for renaming or modifying accounts. You can choose to apply prefixes or suffixes to account names, map accounts between domains or workgroups, disable or delete source accounts after migration, etc.
The options for scheduling and logging. You can choose to run the migration manually or automatically at a specified time or interval, generate reports and log files, send email notifications, etc.
After configuring your migration project, you can save it as a file for future use or execution.
Step 3: Run your migration project
To run your migration project, you can either use the graphical user interface (GUI) or the command line interface (CLI) of Sys-Manage CopyRight2.

To run your migration project using the GUI, open Sys-Manage CopyRight2 on your source server and click on \"Run Project\". Select your migration project file and click on \"Start\".
