I need to copy about 35gb of data from one location to another. I'm going to use Robocopy to do it. But I need to make sure I get all folders, files, permission, time stamps, everything. I need it to be the same as the original. Would the settings I've choosen be correct?

I get really confused with all their switches.

Yes, by typing robocopy /? at a command prompt, I'd agree with the options you've chosen. Only thing I might add is /z (restartable in case network connection is lost).

Another option would be to use Microsoft's free SyncToy, as this produces quite a friendly log too. This gives option of mirror (probably what you want), echo, or synchronise between A and B.
