Using Robocopy File Copy

Robocopy, or “Robust File Copy”, is a command-line directory replication command. It has been available as part of the Windows Resource Kit starting with Windows NT 4.0, and was first introduced as a standard feature in Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008. The command is robocopy.

Although Robocopy itself is a command-line tool, Microsoft Technet has provided a GUI front-end. The GUI requires the installation of the .NET Framework 2.0 (40 MB), if it is not already installed. It was developed by Derk Benisch, a systems engineer with the MSN Search group at Microsoft.[11] The Microsoft Robocopy GUI also includes version XP026 of Robocopy. When downloaded from the TechNet link below, the version reported is “Microsoft Robocopy GUI 3.1.1.”
