All the content from http://OldCompanyWeb should now be imported into the Windows SBS 2008 internal Web site. You can delete the Web site, http://OldCompanyWeb, or mark the database in Microsoft SQL Server 2005 as Read-only to retain the site as an archive database.

noteNote
The Explorer view in Windows SharePoint Services depends on WebDAV. Typically, WebDAV is installed on client operating systems, but not on server operating systems. To use Internet Explorer to view the content on the Windows SBS 2008 internal Web site, access the site from a client computer on the network, or install the Desktop experience from Server Manager on your Destination Server.
