Backup and restore mounted NTFS folders?

Question

Can't seem to find any way to do this.

My drives are mounted to 20ish ntfs mount folders, and now i want to migrate to another machine with better specs.

The idea is just to swap the sas card and then i hope i dont have to remount the drives again because i want to minimize downtime.

Is there anyway to copy these mount folders to the new machine? Or do i have to recreate and re-mount them again one by one?

Cause when i tried to copy them, its actually copying the entire drive...

 

Edit : Well i found out the registry location,

 

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MountPoints2\CPC\LOCALMOF\

So just export and import this key?

Unfortunately, you'll probably still have to mount the drives again. 

The folder structure needs to exist on the destination system. And I believe there is info in the file system itself that is required too
