Video: Give XCopy a graphical interface with this free download

Bill Detwiler shows you how to download, install, and use TechRepublic's free graphical interface for Windows XCopy.

Many Windows power users were more than a little annoyed when Xcopy was deprecated in Windows Vista in favor of RoboCopy—especially those with lots of scripts that made use of Xcopy. Luckily, Xcopy is back in Windows 7 and TechRepublic blogger Greg Shultz has updated his Xcopy tool to work automatically in Windows XP, Vista, and Windows 7. During this episode of TR Dojo, I show you how to download, install, and use this free tool.

You can download the XCopy graphical interface from TechRepublic's Software Directory.

For those who prefer text to video, you can click the Transcript link that appears below the video player window or read Greg Shultz's article, "Simplify file management with the XCopy Tool,"

You can also sign up to receive the latest TR Dojo lessons through one or more of the following methods:
