Hello All,
We are looking to copy around 2TB of data from windows 2008 to windows 2012 and we are planning to use robocopy to do it. I know that if a file exists Robocopy will skip it which is why we want to use it and then run it one more time the night of the switch. We would like to make sure that ntfs permissions, time stamps, attributes, owner info are kept. We'd also like to log the transfer. We'd like to know if this command will cover it:

robocopy \\source \\destination / B /E /copyall /DCOPY:T /V /LOG:filepath\log.txt

Thank you.

Looks good.
In your example, change / B to /B.
Also, you may want to make a different logfile on the night run - for later comparison w/ the first file.

I personally like to add the /SECFIX as well. Ensure that security permissions are corrected fi there are any discrepancies.

OK. So:

robocopy \\source \\destination /B /E /copyall /SECFIX /DCOPY:T /V /LOG:filepath\log.txt

I just tried it on my personal folder and it seemed to work fine. 780mb in 4 minutes.

Thank you both for the quick replies.
