in reply to Robo or Perl?

I used RoboCopy a year ago and It is very good, specially with the automatically daily copy options.

Please use the last version! (XP10, maybe)

And, of course... Write a Perl script to monitoring the existence of robocopy process... sometimes, it crash!

In few words, Robo is best because all options can be set at command line or short config file, include the repetition of daily process... but is not reliable.

    Thanks for all your replies and time.

    It sounds like Robo copy is a good option and I assume it has logs to follow if the copy was successful. I will have to wait for them to implement the Robo copy within the next day.
