Robocopy /MT on Windows 10 (Revisited)

I blogged about the /MT switch of Robocopy way before on Windows 7 and I have been using it for the longest time for moving large amounts of files.

This time I had a chance to screenshot some personal files that I have moved to another drive. Since its not for work, might as well share this to everyone.

Note that these are not Solid State Drives and are just plain HDD and are used for storage only.

So I started with this command that moves everything even if the folder is empty on a specified destination and logs the operation on a .log file”

“robocopy <source> <destination> /mt:120 /E /move /log:robocopy.log”

ROBOCOPY1

Around 20GB-ish worth of files are being moved now.

ROBOCOPY2

And checking the disk activities while the copy is running.

ROBOCOPY3

And for the results!

RemoteFX 3D Video Adapter

Hey this would be a quick post or even a micro post about a new feature in Hyper-V called RemoteFX 3D Video Adapter that was just shipped out with Windows 10 and WS2016.

So I was doing a lab work for a Windows 2016 deployment and found new features such as the Remote FX.

HYPERV4

It seems that I can already share my desktop GPU to my Hyper-V guest! Cool! I have already alot of use cases in my mind, like running my supervised learning ai on my Hyper-V. I just need to install Unity and VS on a VM, play around there so that my PC and Mac is not always maxed out (will try to constrain it now to a 4gb memory so that I could work while waiting for the operations to complete).

Anyway, back to this lab. Yes folks, still using ol’reliable WDS.
