Hello,

When you create your batch file use the following command to copy only .exe

Use : Robocopy "Source" "Destination" *.exe /arguments

Example : Robocopy "C:" "U:" *.exe /E /COPY:DAT /Purge  /R:1 /W:1 /NP

Sincrely yours,

The easiest way to create your custom RoboCopy is to use RoboCopy GUI, which will give you the command after you configured it.
Have in mind that there is also RichCopy, which is multi threaded, and can copy faster. RichCopy will also give you the command lines, and it is what I use to keep folders synchronized copying only the changes.
