nice tool... will it work on 2008 R2 though?

I haven't tried, but it should work. This utility basically copies all the drivers, all the printer shares to a single archive file. All you have to do then is run it on the PC you are migrating the printers to.

well it backed everything up into a bin just fine. cant seem to restore the settings on another server for some reason though

What happens when you try to restore the settings on another server? Does it give a warning or error message?
