robocopy

I wanted to know how would I use the robocopy command if I want to copy files from one folder to another without overwritting any files already in the destination folder?


I'm currently using this synatx for moving everything from one folder to another, but I just need to be able to copy what's in one folder to another, without overwriting any data in the destination folder.

robocopy  \\server\userdocs\usertest E:\userdocs\usertest /E /MIR /COPYALL /MT /V /LOG:E:\logs\usertest.txt /R:0 /W:0 /TEE /ETA /DCOPY:T /FP /ZB

you might want to take a look at richcopy (robocopy's replacement)

http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/File-Management/Microsoft-RichCopy.shtml

but here's robocopy switches:

robocopy c:\Sourcepath c:\Destpath /E /XC /XN /XO

/E makes Robocopy recursively copy subdirectories, including empty ones.
/XC excludes existing files with the same timestamp, but different file sizes. Robocopy normally overwrites those.
/XN excludes files existing files newer than the copy in the source directory. Robocopy normally overwrites those.
/XO excludes files existing files older than the copy in the source directory. Robocopy normally overwrites those.

Thanks, I tried richcopy, but it didn't work that good, I forgot what the problem was, but I didn't like something with it.
