RoboCopy Help - Finding Failed Jobs

I recently did a 500Gig robocopy job on my server.  The log that was created indicated several failed files.  I tried to run a search for the word failed but could not find the file in the log which spans several hundred thousand entries.  Does anyone know of a script or program I can use to go through this log and find these errors for me?

when its happened to me in the past it was because users had changed permissions on files etc.
I just searched the log for the word denied.
Also this is a great tool for searching through huge logfiles.. http://www.wingrep.com/

Hope that helps

That did it, it was a file access problem.  Thank you very much oldhammbo.  Do you have other "keywords" I can search by for possible future failed files?

in all honesty everything seems to come up as access denied, even if it is a corrupt file the log file seems to say access denied. Not very helpful i know!

Glad I was able to help!
