Hey..

I have the wait 30 seconds on a robocopy thats done many many gigs.

Can I just skip current file as its NOT open.. its a rubbish error. I have not set max retries, just went with:
robocopy <source> <destination> /e /zb /dcopy:T /sec /copyall

Don't want to do again as I assume robocopy does not start where it was terminated.

Many thanks in advance.. I am against the wire.. so look forward to a quick response.

Cheers T

But I am already running and it is stuck. I'm familair with xf switch.

I don't want to cancel and start again.

How do I get around this without losing the 5 hours already invested in it. (I have 4x running... 2x are stuck).

Thanks

I've never seen any method of modifying a running robocopy job without killing it, updating the script and rerunning it.

We run robocopy jobs nightly over USB 3.0 connections moving over 400 gigs of backup files within 1.5 hours.  I suggest upgrading your connections. It may shorten all future run times.

Yes, it should skip over all files that have already been copied or are duplicate.

I was able to unlock the file in the end with an unlocking util... so Robocopy is still going so cannot test if I can skip etc...
However, take your word for it.. Thanks for the response
