If you want the least hassle and all the permissions etc, than
Robocopy is your friend.

But if you'd like a bunch of drama getting the permissions back right, then I'm sure RSync will do ya. :)

Seriously though. Perhaps someone else has a better answer - but I've
done this before, and always the best and easiest way always comes
back to robocopy. [Perhaps I've led too sheltered a life, but hey, it
works and there's no real reason not to use it, IMO.]
