Robocopy Loggin Options

I am using robocopy for backup and I don't want to show the *EXTRA File lines everytime robocopy finds an extra file, I just want to be able to show the Header and Job Summary which is enough to let me know of number of files copied/failed/skiped/mismatch..etc
I thought the /NFL and /NDL should do it but I am still getting them.
I am getting the Job header and the job summary just fine!
here is what command looks like:
C:\mirror\robocopy E:\System-Backups D:\Backup\System-Backups /E /COPY:DATS /PURGE /R:3 /W:5 /NDL /NFL /NP /Log:C:\Mirror\Logs\Mirror_Removable_PS.wri

and this what I DON'T want to see because sometimes they get up to 4 pages long!:
*EXTRA File        34094      E:\Faxes\img-4801054.pdf
*EXTRA Dir        -1      E:\Sub 034- Level\
*EXTRA Dir        -1      E:\Sub 034-Level\Documentation\
*EXTRA File      2.0 m      E:\Sub 034-Level\Documentation\001-0100-430.pdf

Any idea?
Thanks

1) make sure that you have the latest version

2) I think that there was an option for summary only

I hope this helps !
