Hi kumarnirmal

Robocopy has a /xd command that will exclude directories with a given name. So if you got a list of the directories to exclude you could use this.

list.txt will have the folder paths to copy
change destinationpath to new server location
Try the following in a batch file

For /F "usebackq" %%A in (list.txt) do (robocopy %%A destinationpath)

Forgot to add the /e switch

For /F "usebackq" %%A in (list.txt) do (robocopy %%A destinationpath /e)
