Using RoboCopy

October 28, 2007

Vista has the windows robust file copy utility RoboCopy built in– which is handy, because often when I try to transfer a 10GB directory (containing a newly ripped DVD) from my working PC to our server, the copy chokes.

Although RoboCopy doesn’t choke the way copying files using Vista’s explorer does it is executed from the command line. (There is a GUI front end for RoboCopy as well, but that has its problems too.)

FYI, the command line switches (in addition to the paths of the directory being copies and the directory being copied to) I have found myself using with RoboCopy are /R:3 /V /S /E amd /Z.
