Robcopy copy parameters

With the following option in robocopy, does it mean any deleted folders/files on the sources will not be deleted on destination ? Should I add additional parameters /MIR and /PURGE  ?

Is it possible to log any errors during the robcopy rather than all details ?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Yes. Not deleted

> Should I add additional parameters /MIR and /PURGE

If you want to match the source, yes. Existing files on the target that aren't on the source are deleted.
