I have inherited a Transfer job at work that is causing me some issues. We are using RoboCopy to transfer files from location to another location. The script does copy the files fine but is set to scan the source folder 15 times for files. The source location has approx. 200 GB of files and Folders. Daily there may be 1 GB of changes that need to be transferred.
The task never seems to compete. Looking at the job log I can see that is still scanning folder for changes. I have changed the amount of retried from 15 to 5 to see if this would change but faced with the same issue.
My question based on this is Scanning 200 GB of files with Robocopy. Does it scan each directory for new changes or can it be set to only scan time stamp changed folders ?
