We are presently moving and copying files on a Server 2008 box using various robocopy scripts.  We are looking for a more feature rich way to accomplish this that will email us if the copy fails and can run a verify after if we want.

Are their 3rd party programs that can accomplish this?

With robocopy you can use the /LOG switch and create a log file. Then you could use powershell to parse the log file and email any failures.

With Powershell v2 you can use the send-mailmessage cmdlet
use "get-help send-mailmessage -full"  to get the help file and some examples.

One third party application I have used in the past is securecopy. I am not sure if it is able to send email notifications though.

KenMcF - Secure Copy looks like it may accomplish our needs.  I just emailed them to see what type of reporting it offers.

We also may need the ability to copy/move to FTP servers...

Looking into ViceVersa @ http://www.tgrmn.com/index.htm as well.

Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

Richcopy can do that. And its free.

I think to get the email feature mentioned with RichCopy you need to purchase RichCopyPlus:  http://www.richcopyplus.com/
After testing all the options suggested, I settled on GoodSync as it accomplishes all my needs

Thanks for all the help!
