Is there a size limit when copying with Xcopy (old Dos command)

Does anyone know if there is a size limit to the amount you can copy at one time using X-copy.  Right now I have a script copying about 20 gig at a time using the old dos command X-copy on a Windows 2003 server.

I need to copy about 500 gig in one batch now.  I read in the documentation that you can copy whole drives with it, but couldn't find a size limit, if there is one.

Thanks

Agree no limits, however have you considered using RoboCopy? It's available for free with the Windows resource kit. It is a little more robust and versatile.
