I want to list what will be deleted from the destination directory. I tried:

robocopy U:\ R:\ /L /E /NOCOPY /PURGE
  • 1
    Also, why the PowerShell tag? Are you trying to call this from PowerShell? May 10, 2016 at 15:24
  • I was trying both cmd and powershell.

1 Answer 1


Adding the following params should output just the list of affected files:

/l /njh /njs /nc /ns /ndl
  • This provides a blank list even though I intentionally created extra files on the destination.
