Simple Powershell Script to Copy User Home Drives.

testmig.txttestmig.txtI'm writing a script that should be used for user migrations from one directory to another using powershell and robocopy. I have the paths I need to copy the users from and to and a CSV with the old usernames and new user names in seperated by "',". This is a pretty simple task but I am a powershell noob and am struggling to get it working.

I need to be able to customise the source and destination locations in the script for now I am using simply, c:\test\source and c:\test\dest. My attempt at making this work is attached. Please have a look and let me know where I'm going wrong. Only Newer files should be copied across each time so the script can be run multiple times during the migration and just pick up newer files the users may have added.

Thanks, the board blocked the script because it had the Powershell extension, I've changed it to .txt and it's happy now. The list of users in the CSV is simply in the format:

Open it in Notepad and paste the text here in a code block
The robocopy parameters are incorrect in the script file.  Here is a modified version:

$csvFile = 'c:\temp\test.csv'
$srchome = 'c:\temp\source'
$dsthome = 'c:\temp\dest'
$logfile = '.\copy.log'

Import-Csv $csvFile -Delimiter ',' |
    ForEach-Object {              
        RoboCopy $srchome $dsthome $_.Source /z /e /np /MIR /COPY:DAT /r:10 /w:40 /XO /IS /log+:$logFile
        $srcDoc = "{0}\{1}" -f $srcHome,$_.Source
        $dstDoc = "{0}\{1}" -f $dstHome,$_.Source
        Write-Host "$srcDoc,$dstDoc" -ForegroundColor green
        rename-item -Path "$dstDoc" -NewName $_.Destination

NOTE: the $dstDoc using the $.Source is not a typo, I re-purposed it to use in the rename-item, because I didn't see a way to rename through robocopy.
