Any Robocopy gurus out there?

    I'm looking to change the way our laptop users My Docs folder is backed up over the network.

    The current system we use is not up to the task and since I've heard good things about Robocopy I thought I'd give it a go.

    Basically, I want to copy all the contents of the My Docs folder across to a folder on a network drive and then in the future, only copy across files that have been altered. I also want to leave any files that have been deleted from the source, still intact on the destination folder.

    I've created a script and tested it on my pc and it appears to run ok, but I'm not sure if I need any more or less switches in the script.

    robocopy "C:\Users\notesbloke\Desktop" "F:\test2" /E /SEC /COPYALL /V /NP /Z 
    The paths I've used are just for testing purposes.

    Could you not simply use Folder redirection instead? because if you're wanting to moving it to a network location anyway there really isn't that much of an issue with network storage space.
