  1. Question about robocopy


    Hi everyone,

    I have a problem with robocopy command: i want to make a script for a backup but i only want the most recent files to be copied, i used to do it with the xcopy command with /d parameter but i have some memory issues.

    Here is an exemple:

    xcopy "D:\Exemple" "Z:\BACKUP\PC\D\Exemple" /s /e /d /i /y It work

    robocopy "D:\Exemple" "Z:\BACKUP\PC\D\Exemple" /s /e /COPYALL /maxage:1 Doesn't work



    Robocopy command either copy everything or nothing, even missing files.



    Thank you in advance!
