Thanks for the prompt responses - yes I am cool with moving volume and qtrees around with various NetApp tools- issue I have is the business wants/needs to move files/directories around inside shares and to new shares.
e.g. 200GB of photos - that are in a general document share - now the marketing team want them in their own share.
IT support team - had a support share that included an area for ISO files - we are now doing DR - an part of that share will be need to be replicated of site with SnapMirror - but I don't want the ISO to be replicated, so I need move them to their own share.
In a perfect world all these shares would be in their own volumes/qtrees and I would not have need to ask the question, but our world is far from perfect.
No drama if no one can suggest anything better - just checking to see if robocopy is still the prefered tool.
