Robocopy and the /MIR parm
Posted on 2008-02-06
In using Robocopy I would like to use the /MIR parm. I wanted to make sure I understood the effect of this parm before using it.
c:\ROBOCOPY F: \\NASHABS-NAS01\DATAPACK\ABSFILER_DATAPACK\ *.* /COPYALL/MIR/IT/R:5/LOG:ROBOCOPY_F.LOG
I am anticipating that this command will copy all files and subdirectories to the folder ABSFILER_DATAPACK and that subsequent running of this command will refresh the files and subfolders under ABSFILER_DATAPACK so that they are an exact copy of F: at the time the command was run.
The primary thing I want assurance on is this: We have other folders on \\NASHABS-NAS01\DATAPACK besides \ABSFILER_DATAPACK. I do not want to impact these other folders at all. I just want to affect the stuff stored under \ABSFILER_DATAPACK.
This command will be running under a Windows 2000 Server OS and copying files to a Windows 2003 NAS.
