File Transfer Tool

Hello I need a GUI based tool to migrate files from one file server to another with the ability to migrate files that are recent i.e. do not migrate files older than 3 years old. Is there such a tool. Please let me know.

Microsoft Robocopy GUI
User generated imageI just ran the Robocopy GUI in Windows 10. I don't see the MAXAGE switch, which would cover the user's request.

/MAXAGE:n MAXimum file AGE - exclude files older than n days/date.

That said, you can use the non-gui, i.e. command line robocopy with the /MAXAGE switch. For 3 years old exclusion of files, you can use /MAXAGE:1095.

It's important to test thoroughly before doing a real copy. Just test on a small folder of files.
Another gui type program that may be useful is FastCopy, https://fastcopy.jp/en/, which seems to be actively maintained. In your case, you can use the FromDate switch, i.e. Don't copy files with timestamps older than a specified date

Continue to use Synctoy with Tree Size to see old files.
