I am trying to move a large amount of files from 2008 server to another. I am having and issue because there is a large amount t of pdf files that have a period in the file name eg. workingsub 11.345.3v2.4.pdf. theses file error out when trying to copy. Is there a utility that works better than just copy from folder to folder that would allow this to copy.

I found that zipping the folder the then extracting it where it needed to go worked.
