Hello, I am removing my old server and installing the new server. I have over 4 TB of data on the old server. How is it possible to take all the data to new server? I am getting old data in external hard drive but it is taking too much time and transferring about 1MB/sec with few errors such as destination folder has too long path. Is there any other way I can take all my data from old server and put it into the new server? Please reply soon. Thanks

Try over a network connection or through a hub with static ips, it may go faster depending on the old server hardware. As far as the path too long errors, you may have to simply skip them then go back and rename them shorter names. I haven't found another solution to this.
