I'm trying to find the best Robocopy commands for each situation I can think of, such as copying a folder that includes the weirdest files (such as the Windows folder), or a Windows User's folder, etc.
What are the best "retries" and "wait times between retries" numbers to use (switches /R: and /W:)?
I'm thinking of:
/R:3 /W:1 (vs the default 1million /R:1 million, /W:30 seconds)
I mean, why wait more than one second between retries?, the default is 30 seconds, why so? I guess this is intended for hard drives so the drive heads move around between reattempts?.
...then if more reattempts are needed (by looking at the log and finding errors due to bad sectors or similar), you can change the switches and try again.
