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”

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

And checking the disk activities while the copy is running.

ROBOCOPY3

And for the results!
