Robocopy bug RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am reporting a bug with the program robocopy.  My system is Windows 7 32bit.
    The bug was introduced when hotfix kb3125574 was applied.

    The bug seems to be that now, robocopy, is using the "access time" of the source
    file to determine if the file is to be copied to the target.

    Every copy that is executed by robocopy in annotated in the robocopy log with
    the tag "new file" "newer" "older" "changed" ... etc.  With this bug, the copy
    is noted in the log, but the tag (field) is blank

    I was able to duplicate this, the console session is attached.

    This bug has rendered robocopy useless.
