Hi there,

I have this Robocopy command line that needs to be "fixed".

Robocopy "!BasePath_Source!" "!BasePath_Dest!" * /TEE /ETA /E /COPYALL /MIR /NP /ZB /LOG+:"%File_LOG_Mirror%_temp.TXT" /XF Thumbs.db ~*.* *.swp *.dmp *.tmp pagefile.sys hiberfil.sys /XD MCAF*.TMP "$VAULT$.AVG" "_RESTORE" "MSOCache" "Recycled" "RECYCLER" "Temporary Internet Files" "System Volume Information" "Virtual Machines *" "temp" ISO

PROBLEM:
-------------------------------------------------------------
The LOG file stores all the files = NO GOOD

I need that the LOG file only logs the new, or changed files = GOOD

Thanks for your help,
Rene

Do you mean you want the copy itself to only copy the new or changed files, or that you still want it to copy all files, but only log the new and changed files?

Hey bp!

The mirror part does it good.

My focus here is the log file.

I only want to log the copied or changed files.

Thanks,
Rene

Hmm, a little confused.  When I ran a test with the /MIR option, it only listed the file names of the files it copied, see attached.  What am I missing?

Add the following options to your command.
     /NDL    Exclude directory names (listing)
     /XO     Exclude Old files
     /XX      Exclude Extra files (files in the destination, but not in the original source)
You may want to use this option, but most likely not.
     /XL     Exclude Lonely (Unique files are not copied)
New command:
Robocopy "!BasePath_Source!" "!BasePath_Dest!" * /NDL /XX /XO /TEE /ETA /E /COPYALL /MIR /NP /ZB /LOG+:"%File_LOG_Mirror%_temp.TXT" /XF Thumbs.db ~*.* *.swp *.dmp *.tmp pagefile.sys hiberfil.sys /XD MCAF*.TMP "$VAULT$.AVG" "_RESTORE" "MSOCache" "Recycled" "RECYCLER" "Temporary Internet Files" "System Volume Information" "Virtual Machines *" "temp" ISO

Yes, I think /NDL is what you are after.
