Robocopy Specific Folders to Different Drive on Server 2008R2
Posted on 2013-11-25
I have a directory that contains 2,000 folders. Each of those folders contains subfolders and files. I need to move all this data in phases to an alternate drive. I would like to perform the move in phases, about 500 folders each phase. What are my options to do so? RichCopy does not seem to work and allow me to check these folders, it appears to become unresponsive while setting up the job. I believe I'm left with robocopy or other similar command. Is there any way to include the list of subfolders in a script and only copy those over with /copyall command? I understand that Robocopy does 1 directory at a time - if I just create a batch file with 500 lines of robocopy commands with each containing the specific directory, will this work?
