Data Integreity.

By tanmay_79 ·
Hi guys,

I want to create a script which continually sends some text files from one of the network pc to a test share on the file server. The script should than copy the data back and compare, send again, copy back, and compare, etc, for a few weeks.

I have been assigned this task to verify and make sure data is not corrupted at any point on the network or server.

I am thinking of using batch scripts but how do I compare them for corruption??? Please suggest something urgently.....

Pleazzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Thanks
Tanmay.

Robocopy may do what you want.

It will copy and verify. It also has switches that will allow you to copy only changed files.

It's kinda like xcopy on steriods.

I hope this helps

Thanks faradhi for the link, but i could not find if robocopy would do a CRC check too and log is any corruption detected.

Also I found a small dos utility FSUM which can do crc or md5 on files. But i will have to implemet it using batch files. Hope it works. If you find anything similar... please let me know.

Thanks
Tanmay.
