So I was messing about with Robocopy over the weekend and I decided to re-run an old copy job, using a new Desktop.
Strangely, my copy did not kick off like it did before. The problem – the new version of robocopy has new features and new syntax (yes I know it has been out a while – thanks clever clogs . . . )
anyway, long story short, looking at the updated switches, I noticed :
/MT[:n] :: Do multi-threaded copies with n threads (default 8). n must be at least 1 and not greater than 128. This option is incompatible with the /IPG and /EFSRAW opt
How awesome is that! The new robocopy runs Multi threaded and can be ramped up to 128 Threads!!!!!!! (this is Vista onwards I believe. – seems something good actually did come with Vista?)
