Easy RoboCopy

RoboCopy is a Microsoft command-line tool for copying files and folders. It is very fast, fault-tolerant, and has dozens of parameters to customize the copy process, such as filtering by name, attributes, synchronizing folders, etc. Easy RoboCopy is a graphical user interface (GUI) for RoboCopy. It shows all the options on one form with descriptive names and tooltip help. As options are selected, the corresponding command line is shown and may be executed directly or saved to a batch file. Run the program and click the help button for more information.

Windows Vista and 2008 Server come with a copy of robocopy.exe (version XP027) that only runs in those operating systems. For older versions of Windows, like XP and 2003 Server, Easy RoboCopy installs the previous version of robocopy.exe (XP026). Any arguments that require a specific version are color-coded in the interface.

This tool is portable, meaning that it can be run without installation, such as from a memory stick. See the readme file for instructions.
