RoboCop RoboCopy is a GUI skin and script generator for Robocopy.exe (Win NT Resource Kit). RoboCop RoboCopy is unlike any other robocopy script generator available since it has the ability to monitor the progress of the robocopy job. It shows real time monitoring of all its running robocopy jobs.

Robocopy is a robust file copying program built into Windows similar to UNIX rsync. It is a much better method of copying large datasets or lots of files across volumes and is a great tool for backing up data. It has the ability to resume copies if interrupted, various options and logging during copying. Using a scheduled task can automate this, so backups are done every night, without interaction from you.

Robocopy has some advantages over the standard copy-paste, it depends what you want it for. Advantages:

  • multiple threads, thus copies faster and more effectively uses your bandwidth. It starts copy immediately without scanning entire whole source folder 

  • you can set it to verify the copy job, make sure no errors during process

  • Exclude certain files or folders 

  • Mirror 1 folder to another with copy/pasete/delete files in the destination.

  • It can resume if interrupted

  • Speificy file and folder attibutes and permissions

  • logging, hash checks, etc…

  • all variables customizable

  • there is also a GUI version for Windows
