7 Comments1 Solution752 ViewsLast Modified:

I have two USB disk attached to a server. I have copied all the data from disk E: to disk F: I want now to setup Robocopy in order to run diferential copies from E: to F:

The goal would be to use a batch or vbs to run robocopy and the right switches in order to copy all the changes.  Once I have the script I will run a scheduled task.

I have found the following script but it does not work.  am getting following output on my console which is repeating continously:

Maximum setlocal recursion level reached.

Could someone help me out.

Thank you.
