RoboCopy to the rescue
Another day and another tool to save the
day. Today I was staging the production DCs for different types
of updates and I really didn't feel like copying 50+ files to these
servers. So I remembered an old friend of mine named RoboCopy.
RoboCopy has been around for some time and is a life saver when wanting
to copy an entire directory with sub-folders and sub-files underneath
What I do when I want to copy files to
multiple servers is to create a batch file that includes all the
servers. I'm sure there is a better way to script this but i'm
not a scripting monkey.
I'll just copy this as many times
as I have servers and replace \\servername with the actual server
name. The folder called update on the source was the parent
folder that contained all the folders I wanted to copy over.
This folder will not be copied over during this operation and it will
copy the folders that were under it to the root of C:\Temp of the
