Robocopy Copy Script

Hi Guys,

I need some assistance with the preparation of a Robocopy script.

The requirement is to only copy the Files/Folders for the current week from the Source to Destination and thereafter the Robocopy should only copy new files only.

Please advise.

Thanks guys

To add to above I need the data to be copied across from 4 Servers to a central server.


Source Files are at C:\Data on Server 1, Server 2, Server 3 & Server 4

Destination folder is at: \\Server5\e$\data

It would be handy to make 1 script with all above servers.

Thanks Guys
robocopy \\server1\c$\data \\server5\e$\data\server1 *.* /e /m
robocopy \\server2\c$\data \\server5\e$\data\server2 *.* /e /m
robocopy \\server3\c$\data \\server5\e$\data\server3 *.* /e /m
robocopy \\server4\c$\data \\server5\e$\data\server4 *.* /e /m

/e = copy sudfolders also
/m = copy only files with Archive attribute set, then remove/reset attribute (this will only copy new/modified files)
you can add other switches if you like, but that should be the basic command
the first copy you probably don't want the /m switch, afterwards add the /m switch
