Robocopy multithread switch not working as expected. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Greetings. I'm a DBA so I never use this particular forum -- feel free to move if in the wrong spot. 

    I'm attempting to use the /MT switch in Robocopy and it doesn't appear to be working. I kicked off 3 file transfers all at the same time from different command prompts. One was /MT:1, one was /MT:8, and the last was /MT:16 

    Looking in Task Manager, the thread count for robocopy.exe is 4 for all 3 of them. 

    This is on windows server 2016.


    Thanks in advance! ChrisRDBA
