you want to write the robocopy command output to a file? Two ways to do this.  You can direct ALL output to the file (no screen output), or output to both the file and the screen.

robocopy D:\test \\server\sharedfolder /E /Copy:DATSO /W:3 /R:3 /V /LOG:logfilename /TEE

/E copies all directories, even empty ones
/W:3 waits 3 seconds between failures
/R:3 limits retries to 3 times (default is a million)
/V verbose output
/TEE spits output to the  filename under /LOG and to the screen
/COPY: tells robocopy what to copy.  the important parts here are (D)ata (A)ttributes (T)imestamps.  (O)wner and (S)ecurity are important, but can sometimes trip you up.

ok, well robocopy with the /log flag will do that...

/LOG:filename for new file
/LOG+:filename to append to existing logfile

try

robocopy D:\test \\server\share /E  /LOG+:robocopy.log /TEE /V

Open in new window


Also, add /XO if you do not need to recopy files that have not been modified
