    How are the flash games stored on the server? As different set of files? If, yes you can use ssh or rsync.

    Create a tar of the directory in which you have all the flash game files and using the scp command you can copy it from one server to another.

    Thanks for the replies guys. I ended up hiring someone to do this for me and it worked perfectly well.

    I've been using a php script called Rapid Transfer Script to transfer files from one server to another. Transfers 1GB files in under 90 seconds which blew me away. Pretty easy to setup, just upload the script and open it in the browser then enter the url of the file to copy and hit Transfer.
