using free software called xxcopy, very similar to xcopy in DOS. I used the following command:
xxcopy "\\workstation1\Home Public\" \\station1\files /H /E /C /K /S /oN:c:\missedlog.txt
moved about 70GB of data from \\workstation1 to \\station1, it took 24 hours to complete. both of these drives were on my ethernet network (10/100 Mbps ) and they both had ip addresses. my question is, why did xxcopy miss a bunch of folders. Not only did it miss them it also did not show up in my missed log text file. It makes me wonder how many other files could have been missed. anyone know why or ever experienced something like this?
also, the actual xxcopy software was installed on my wireless laptop. So I ran the command from there, not sure if that was a good idea or whether or not it being wireless mattered. does it, if so how?
