Use of XXCopy
Posted on 2009-04-08
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.
