When running robo copy version XP010 will it make any difference if you run several copies for the same source and destination at once? I have a script that runs to make the copy but if I run the script 10 times so there are 10 processes running will it copy faster or not make any difference?

Is there any way to speed up robo copy more that one process running at a time?

Thanks for the link. I guess what I am wondering is if more data can be copied in the same amount of time. What makes me wonder is the way robo copy checks files to see if they need to be updated, if I run several sessions are they all going to be checking at the same time or once they get through that phase will it speed up the amount of data copied per hour.

Also if I run the same copies from more than one server will that help speed it up? I don't want to do it if it is just recopying files instead of each session copying it's own set of files.

This is the command I am using.
robocopy.exe %Source% %Destination% /ZB /MIR /COPYALL /E /R:5 /W:1 /TEE

Thanks,

it depends on network and disk performance,
you can try to split up different robocopy batches per subfolder and launch them separately
