robocopy to copy changes
Posted on 2014-09-08
We are copying some data across the network using robocopy, which we tested and works fine, but we would like to copy the data in advance, and then just copy the changes on the day. These are the switches we use for the initial copy:
robocopy /COPY:DATSO /Z /B /E /R:3 W:5 /V /LOG:c:\_robocopy\log.txt
What do I need to use to only copy new and changed files, overwriting the older versions on the target location? I tried looking at gui versions like richcopy and robomirror, but had some problems and crashes, so we decided to stick to what was tested and worked.
