    Robocopy and /ETA switch

    I have a few batch scripts to backup or restore files, and for some of them, I have the /ETA switch in them as they will move some larger files. In W7, It would always give the time to transfer, but in Win10 (x64), this switch doesn't seem to do anything. When I do Robocopy /? it lists the ETA switch, but nothing happens.

    My question is does anyone know if this eliminated this switch in W10? Anyone know of anyways to get it back (will robocopy from W7 work on W10 you think?)

    I would suggest that you should post simultaneously to Technet forum also as there this will increase chances of getting the fast answer to this query. So, your question will be on two forums - This and Technet.

    Can't Copy to Server

    Try copying using robocopy and using the backup mode switches. For example

    robocopy c:\mydata \\server\share /e /zb
