Do you use batch files at all to copy files from one place to another? If so, you know that you can use copy, xcopy, xcopy32, and other commands to do this. In the Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit Tools there was also a utility called Robocopy.Â The latest edition of TechNet Magazine talks about this utility, and a new GUI front end to help you use the utility.
Some people prefer the command line and for those people, the Robocopy tool as it ships is great. However, others are more point-and-click oriented, and for that crowd, there’s Robocopy GUI. This welcome add-on to Robocopy comes to us from Derk Benisch, a systems engineer with the MSN Search group at Microsoft. Derk’s utility allows users to customize their Robocopy scripts using a simple and very familiar-looking graphical interface.
