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)
