Windows 7: Can You Control File Copy Priority?

Reversing did not work. What I did was, made a new file in the source. When I copied back using MIR, the new file was deleted.

I'm thinking I'll try using the /MOV switch. I'll have to wait though until the current transfer is done. It IS nearly 300 GB on a SATA II connection. I'll post back when I get it figured out and if it ends up being an acceptable solution, I'll mark the thread as solved and update the OP with the solution.

EDIT: The /MOV switch will only move files if they do not already exist in the destination. I want to delete files off of the source which I already copied over. Any ideas?

I'm not too sure about the /move command as I've never used it before. There are a couple more links for you to look at below. Also in that first tutorial link I posted, if you go to the end of the thread and post what you need, he (Golden) will write a script for you.

move/copy file option priority
When I select several files from one folder to move to a different folder will the most currently dated file automatically remain in the "moving" to file if the a file I am moving is older than the existing file? Or do I have to audit the move and select "skip" everytime there is a file conflict?
