I have a MBR Volume which is now 2TB in size and I can't expand it any larger due to technical limitations.
I've created a new GPT volume, and can't seem to get RoboCop RoboCopy to copy any files, it just keeps starting over and looping.
Robocopy stringAre there any alternatives (paid is fine) that will copy files/folders/ntfs permissions to a new volume on the same host, while monitoring for new files and copy them over once the migration of data has completed??
Many Thanks

RoboCopy has a "flaw" - a backslash double quote sequence is misinterpreted. Just remove the trailing backslash from both path names, and it should work fine.
