Cross checking RoboCopy switches RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to make an exact copy (timestamps, security permissions, literally everything exact) of all files moved from one drive to another.  In all of the robocopy examples I'm seeing little variants.  Therefore, I'm second guessing my command despite testing.

    Here is my command:  robocopy c:\test k:\test /E /ZB /DCOPY:T /COPYALL /secfix /timefix

    /e for everything
    /zb to keep it going
    /SECFIX (do I need this?)
    /TimeFIX (do I need this?)

  • Hi,

    The /secfix and /timefix should be used if files are already copied to target folder, and you are going to sync the ACL/Time as the source files are modified.
