Robocopy 6.2 on Windows 7?


  • I would like to use the latest version of Robocopy (6.2.9200, the version pre-installed on Windows 8 systems) on my Windows 7 and Server 2008 machines because I need the /J switch.  I tried copying robocopy.exe from Win8 to Win7 but it did not work -- is there any version of robocopy that has the /j switch that will work on a Windows 7 system?

  • Hi DLKA,

    robocopy /J is not supported on windows 7. Even copying from windows 8 is not going to work as underlying components have to support it. After all copying is happening at file system level. robocopy is just a utility that will call into underlying file system components.
