Hi, I'm about to migrate a lot of files from a windows server to a new, 
shiny samba-server.

I just got a small problem : What is the best way to do this?

I'e tried rsync, but it croaks on some files with names like "somethign 
:some.eml" the same does cp.

What I'm wondering about, is has anyone else had these problems, and if 
so, how did you solve them? Do you have a script for cleaning out 
characters like this one?
