    Robocopy. Can someone help please!


    Basically I would like to copy from my Skydrive to copy to my NAS once a day everyday. I know some of the basics but need help with specifics like copy to folder and making sure the newest file exists as the saved copy.

    Here we go!

    Robocopy C:\Users\Clive\SkyDrive\Documents B:\ /


    Thanks guys for comments!

    If your looking for a clean way to do that, you should look at Microsoft Richcopy which is a GUI'd + version of Robocopy. I've used it for years and it works fine under Windows-8.

    For more info see: Free Utility: RichCopy, an Advanced Alternative to RoboCopy
    Online Guide & extra info: RichCopy Guide - ETCwiki

    Hope it helps.

    Will it show you the command line after you set the switches? That might give you the command you need for your automation.
