Hi

I want to use robocopy to copy files from one drive to another, but i only need to copy the changes. Is that possible with robocopy?

Also i want to do it multi threated if possible. I know the /mt:128 but aint working on ther server 2003 im doing all this on.

there are many links on google, but cant seem to find one that actually does this?

robocopy <source> <destination> /mir

That will create a mirrored copy. So when run a second time, will just copy changed files

hey both...

thanks for the answers.

i  am little afraid to use the MIR again cause somewhere it said that MIR would delete files as well?

if you do not want this use /e /xo

It does delete files in the destination that are no longer in the source. But will not delete source files.

or Damjam idea
robocopy <source> <destination> /xo /e
will copy over new files and directories only
