Executive Summary

Microsoft updated Robocopy with some extra features designed for Vista and decided to make it a regular part of the Windows Vista operating system. While this is a good thing in that it is readily accessible to all, there is a catch -- Robocopy is a command line tool and its power is tucked away in more than 80 switches. In this edition of the Windows Vista Report, Greg Shultz examines Robocopy and the necessary switches in detail. He then shows you how to create and use a command line script to create an exact mirrored duplicate of all the data files in your user profile folder.
