Hello Experts,

I am using Robocopy to copy files from an exteran drive to our server.  The problem is we already have some of the files on the server..and robocopy copies them anyway...making the copy take longer.

Is there a way to tell robocopy not to copy the file if it already exists in the destination?

Thanks,
Wayne

It shouldn't be copying identical files which already exist in the destination.  You can use the /XC switch to exclude files which have been changed.
