Robocopy is your best friend in this scenario. The first run might take a couple of days. Subsequent runs should take less than a hour.

Hi Mike, I was going to recommend robocopy as well. The process outlined here should be sufficient: https://portal.smartertools.com/kb/a2874/use-robocopy-to-move-from-one-server-to-another.aspx

I take it there is no physical access because that would be the best way and then follow up with robocopy or similar option
