I need some help with Robocopy GUI please.

Hello all,

To save my life I could not get the Robocopy GUI to work. I have no problem using it with command line by dropping in to CMD.

Tried the GUI it reported that the job is finished as soon as I click "RUN" but nothing copied.

Thank you kindly,
Nid

Why not just put the command line commands in a bat file and run them like that? It's how I do my backups.

Somehow I knew people would say that LoL. I just finished moving over 700GB of images from old HDD to a new one and that took about 19 hrs LoL. Well, over the Home Network (from old NAS to new NAS).

Now, I have 1.3TB of more images to go. I guess I will fire up the laptop and let it robocopy with command line from the CMD and let it run for the next day or two. I have got to come up with a better way to do this. I have a lot of images they are 22 Megapixel and anywhere from 28MB - 35MB RAW and over 60MB each for TIFF....

Thank you,
Nid

Robocopy still the best option?
I've never had a backup routine but am about to begin. Was going to implement RAID 1 but after some forum education am finding out a removable backup disk is what I really want.
