    Robo Copy Switch

    Hello All

    I need to use Robocopy to copy files from one server to another. I know itís going to throw some access denied errors on some of the files but I want to log these to a txt file for later inspection.

    I have looked at the robocopy /? and canít work out which switches to use (have a bad Monday morning lol)

    Would anyone be able to help?

    Thanks

    Depends what you want to do.

    /LOG:<path\filename> writes a log file to disk.

    Usual options are "/copy:DATS" to copy all files with Data, Attirbutes, Timestamps, Security settings. add O for Ownership to be copied aswell.

    This MS Technet guide is quite handy. Robocopy

    I often cheat and run: "robocopy /? > Robocopy.txt" that way all of the commands are in a text file which can be read more easily than the cmd box....

    Otherwise there is a GUI tool for robocopy which can be found here
