Hi,

Looking for a command to do the following:

COPY FILE AND FOLDER THAT ARE:

Copy/overwrite same file with the exclusion if the file is newer/modified

I have the following script:

robocopy "\\Oldlocation\Files" "\\NewLocation\Files" /XN /XC /IS

Does not seem to keep the newer file, it overwrites it.

Any help will be appreciated.

Regards,

introlux

Hi,

/XN mean " Excludes newer files."

and use /R:2 so that any open files will be skipped after 2 attempts.

/sec

for security

so final command will looks like

robocopy "\\Oldlocation\Files" "\\NewLocation\Files"  /XC /IS /SEC /R:2

This does not work. anything that is modified also needs to be skipped. This is basically new files or existing files with a newer modified timestamp.
