Resumeable Windows File Copying

Recently having need to copy huge files or a whole set of files more often over the network. Thinking of finding a tool like getright. So, this is the tool I found really useful.

Robocopy - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robocopy

How it fit my usage is with command like below.

robocopy \\source\dir\\destination\dir /W:15 /R:30 /E /Z

W = 15 seconds pause should it failed
R = Retry of 30 times
Z = Restartable mode
E = Copying content recursively (including subfolders content)

(use /MIR if want to mirror both side of content instead of /E. /MIR would remove the destination file if not found in source)

Adding notepad, command prompt, powershell run here context menu

Create a text file, name it temp.reg. Then, for each application you want to add it context menu.
Copy and paste to the temp.reg. Then, just execute the temp.reg by double clicking it.

For Powershell
