All files, folders, and permissions will be copied over, the only change should be the drive letter that is used to access the files.  To ensure that files are still accessible in the event of a problem the files and folderson the current server will remain accessible during the transition and for 2 weeks after, however permissions will be changed to Read Only; files can be opened, but no changes or new files will be able to be saved or created.
