I seem to remember using this back in the day but it seems to have disappeared from XP and Vista, is there an alternative? Xcopy works well for an incremental backup with the /s /d /y switch but I want my backup drive to mirror my source files meaning when I delete something it's also deleted from the backup, xcopy does not have this function. The Mirror command has exactly what I need, free and simple if only I could get it! Any suggestions?

or robocopy (in particular, the /mir switch).. can also have robocopy monitor the source and rerun itself after x number of minutes or x number of file changes



edit:
Robocopy can be downloaded as part of the windows 2003 Resource Kit.. but works fine on 2000, ui XP and Vista

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
