Powershell and Robocopy - Failed files RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am currently working on a Powershell script to move websites from one server to another. One of the steps is copying the data, and I use Robocopy for that.

    I wanted to ask you if you know how can I check if all the files have been copied correctly, or if there has been any error with any of them.

    Right now what I do is save the log files, but I need to check manually the summary of the log to check if all of the files were copied, and then proceed.

    Each of failed file has a line on the log saying "The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.". I could parse the log searching for that line, but I think there must be an easier (and 'cleaner') solution!

    Thank you very much!
