Secure Copy

Migrate file server data securely, with zero impact on end users. Secure Copy is an automated solution for securely migrating data, shares, printers and more. This file server migration toolkit gives you the flexibility to control how data is migrated and doesn’t require the use of agents or scripts. Secure Copy enables you to migrate data from one server to another quickly, safely and easily, consolidate file servers or move data to an NAS/SAN device.

Unlike system-provided tools, Secure Copy’s architecture dramatically shortens the time it takes to complete a migration. The solution also provides intuitive reporting that empowers you to manage data migration projects at any level of complexity.

Using migration features with Secure Copy 02:15


Securely migrate data

Migrate not only files, but “critical metadata that works behind the scenes,” including: files, folders, local users and groups, NTFS permissions, shares, attributes, settings, ownership, updated SID history. You can also use this Microsoft file server migration toolkit to ensure that security and configurations on the target server match the source server.

Control how, what and when data is migrated

Control the data migration process at “every turn,” allowing the migration to work around the end user instead of the end user working around the data migration. To mitigate the risk of network downtime, you can control thread count with “multi-threading,” control bandwidth with “bandwidth throttling,” and overcome locked files with “administrator override.”

Automate complex, tedious and manual tasks

Automate complex, tedious pre- and post-migration tasks to shorten the time it takes to complete migration projects. This file server migration toolkit also includes update utilities that allow you to update user and file information without having to update each user account in Active Directory. 

Report on job status, skipped files and more

Manage data migration projects with a wide variety of reports, to ensure a job well done or catch a problem that would have otherwise gone unnoticed. This Microsoft file server migration toolkit also includes reports on copied files, failed jobs, migration analyses, skipped files and easy-to-scan dashboards.

Job status dashboard

Track job status with at-a-glance graphs and gauges, including performance, migration status by file type and more.

Post-migration reporting

Get post-migration statistics on migrated data, helping maintain the security and control needed even for highly regulated environments.
