[Samba] Automating migration of files from windows to samba

   Honestly,  I'm not sure if it would work on samba but I use a utility
called xxcopy (http://www.xxcopy.com) to sync files between NT/2000 servers,
kinda like robocopy.  It has a switch that copies file permissions, security
info and such.  

Here's the command line I use...  xxcopy \\server-name\e$ e:\ /CLONE /YY /SC

Again, not sure if this will work but it's worth a shot =)

Has anyone figured out a good automated way to migrate files from 
Windows Server to Samba Server without compromising file ownership and 
We could just log on as each user and then drag and drop using windows 
explorer to preserve the permissions and ownership rights but that is 
not a very efficient method. 
We are using Samba with winbindd against a windows 2000 Domain
