    improve copying large batches of files

    When copying large batches of files, say 18,000 files, Windows stops copying after 5 files and has a problem with one file. It waits for user input to skip the file before it goes on. So you can't leave the batch copy running unattended. It would make more sense to copy all the good files and then list the problems at the end.

    I can see where you are coming from but I think you need to look into a little built in feature called robocopy

    Another way to get information on Robocopy would be.
    Start Orb and select Help and Support. Type in Robocopy. Lots of information.
