How to verify a robocopy has worked as intended

Hi, im a new admin so be gentle.

Im trying to move whole drives from one server to a new server. Im needing to preserve all file attributes (including permissions) when moving to the new server. To do this I have used Robocopy using the following switches:

robocopy \\<server a>\<drive>$ \\<server b>\<drive>$ /v /copyall /zb /np /mir /r:10 /w:10 /log+:<logname>.txt

Before executing the above line I also created the approprate path permissions.
Everything seems to have gone ok, bitewise everything is the same but I need to see if EVERYTHING else is the same, so I can just remap the login batch files and everyone will still have there data and wont really notice the difference. Thanks in advance.

if you re-run robocopy it should skip over identical files - so if all the files have been copied over from one drive to another it should not attempt to copy any other files on the second try. Hope this helps.
