Use of XXCopy

I'm inheriting a Java project where files are being copied with the xxcopy utility.  The program is changing so that the copies now will be single file copies only.  I'm told that the purpose of the use of the xxcopy utility is the quality of the copy that gets made.  The program is involved with litigation discovery and the copied files must meet forensic standards.

Before I get too far along, I'd like to know if xxcopy makes any sense now that the copy will always involve just a single file.  Is the quality of an xxcopy file really more acceptable?  Will there be significant performance issues?  The scale of the files involved will range from 10,000 to 100,000 in a single run.

XXCOPY was an MSDOS program.
It was fast and would copy entire trees, but it is unavailable under XP and Vista.
It might have problems with long UTF filenames.

By the way: a copy is 100%, otherwise it's not a copy,
so any program or procedure that copies will do.

;JOOP!

Thx.  This confirms what I'm thinking - how can the copy have better quality.
