I have 50 GB of files on an iServer that was copied onto an external hardrive.  What is the best way to copy these files onto a Seagate NAS Server.  The external HD is plugged into the USB and appears as a drive.  Should I use xcopy is DOS or can I drag and drop in windows SP?

Software/Hardware used:
Seagate NAS Server and an external HD

xcopy and drag and drop are basically the same thing. You can do either. By the way do you mean iSeries?

    If you are sure you don't have files open or locked, you can use xcopy if you want to preserve file attributes (assume that your NAS boxe support extended attributes). If you don't care about attributes, drag/drop is fine. If you know that som files might be open or locked by some applications, you will need to use some other tools like robocopy. It will create Volum Shawdow Copy for you then copy the open files. If you want tools to backup up those files to you NAS box, you can look at NetCDP at www.netcdp.com, which lets you backup your files continuously to NAS box, including open files.
