Robocopy /purge or /mir RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are migrating our file server from Novell to Windows and I will be using Robocopy to do the copy. i know I cannot move the Novell rights so I have setup the folders (blank) on the destination ahead of time with the rights I want. I was going to just use the MIR switch to keep things in sync but read that MIR could overwrite the rights on the destinantion, is this true? I am not trying to do anything with rights and don't want any rights being assigned or changed.

    Am I better off using /E /Purge or /MIR.....or would I be better off with a different program like RichCopy.

    Thanks for the advise,

  • Sorry but this is not a RoboCopy forum.

  • Whoops, sorry about that. I thought I saw other Robocopy questions here. I will post it elsewhere.

  • No problem.  Post in forum for your version of Windows.
