HI,
I need a copy of data from one folder to another (incremental).

Folder A - E:\WBDB\Diagram
Destination Folder b - Q:\WBDB\Diagram

Any suggestions?

I would advise trying the below command. You will need to first do a full backup/copy of the folder and then the incremental copy will follow when ran the next time.

Robocopy "E:\WBDB\Diagram" "Q:\WBDB\Diagram" *.* /E /COPYALL /Z /XO /R:3 /W:5 /TEE /LOG:E:\log.txt
pause

The above command copies all the files and folders from E:\WBDB\Diagram to Q:\WBDB\Diagram and then when its done it will create a log of the copy on the root of the E:\. When you then run the above the second time it will only copy new and modified files and folders over to the destination.

Bear in mind I've ran the above in my test lab using a batch file and it works fine!!

If you're not comfortable with the use of batch files I would highly recommend Cobian Backup which is also a great tool use for backups in a GUI format. This also supports the use of incremental backups as we have used this at a few client sites.
