Robocopy has been around for years within the Microsoft eco-system and it is highly versatile. However, until recently, it wasn’t a tool that I was versed at and frankly, hardly used it. Over the past year or so, however, I have found myself using it more and more as a solution to for file movement when needed.
Essentially, robocopy will move files or even directories from one location to another. It will copy permissions without any additional coding, and it will only copy the files that do not exist within the destination. This is useful in that you do not have to explicitly account for files that might already exist at the destination. It handles it for you.
