Using an evidence mover helps to transfer files around and preserve its integrity. It is also savesa lot of time on image verification after the evidence have been transferred. I have been using MicroForensics Evidence Mover (the latest version is 1.1.17) for quite some time now. It is a nice free tool. There is one little problem with this tool. When the destination drive becomes unavailable, MicroForensics Evidence Mover happily reports that all files have been successfully transferred. Unless you check for the logs and make sure that every (source) file has been listed in the log, there is a good chance that the transfer is incomplete.
Nuix Evidence Mover 2.0.21 is also free and looks and feels like the one from MicroForensics, except one little detail. The tool from Nuix actually reports that all files have been transferred OK. If the destination drive becomes unavailable during the transfer, you will not see the line similar to this one:
