Mirror DOS command?

#1
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
