Hi Paulo,

the principle is described here:
http://docs.plone.org/manage/deploying/copy.html, especially

so, create a new Plone site (probably using the Universal Installer for
copy over buildout.cfg, src, and the storage of your instance. (data.fs
and blobstorage)

Just the tools used there are for linux/mac. You will have to use
windows tools to do the actual copying of \var\filestorage\Data.fs
\var\blobstorage from your current server to your new server.

I think robocopy can do this, which is built-in. There's also
Microsoft's Synctoy,
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=15155 or
acrosync http://acrosync.com/windows.html

then, re-run buildout. Oh, and if your new plone-site runs under a
different username than your own, make sure to change ownership on the
new site to cover the copied files.

Hope that helps
