Robocopy question

Im trying to use Robocopy to copy some data to another server. Is it normal for 65gb to take over 2 1/2 days and counting?

It depends on how many small files you have in that 65 GB. It's a bit long anyway.

Correct, high amount of files and folders, and in particular of files in the same folder, can slow down access to an unreasonable degree. Do you see progress?

Good day,

It looks like you have some bad sectors on the machine you copy from. Try to stop copying to server. Run chkdsk /F /R /X. Then run Robocopy again.
