I am using Robocoy to copy files inbetween our differenent locations.  Working well.  I need to know the switches to put on so that robocopy copies only files that have changed or any new ones added once the full copy is already run on a particular folder to save time and bandwidth.
At the moment I am using

one more thing:  I am calling my script which is bak.bat from windows task schedular on server 2008.  Is there a way once the script is called by task schedular, it should actually show me the Dos window on screen where its running the files which are copied?
I think that will only happen if you're logged in as the user whose credentials are being used to launch the script.  That is, if you're logged in as administrator, and you're using the administrator account to run the batch file, you may see the command prompt.  Don't hold me to that.
As I mentioned before, the '/tee /log:{filename}' command may help you as it will output what's going on to a file as well as a screen.  If you don't want it to screen, drop the '/tee' bit.
Thanks Gentlemen, I really appreciate your time.
