    Except RoboCopy doesn't work properly on Windows 8... I've tried everything I found suggested in the various forums - but it still copies over files with the exact same date/timestamps.


    Which version of RC are you using? Have you tried the one from Win7?

    Nothing is faster than RoboCopy.


    Beginning to think so too, despite the RichCopy claims that it's faster than RoboCopy.

    If at first you don't succeed, do it like your mother told you.

    Yup and the one with Windows 8 - which I don't think is any different than the prior versions.

    Easy enough to verify; just do a binary comparison of the 2.

    I'm headed back to WHS 2011 so s/b fine using RoboCopy again. RichCopy isn't exactly running lighting fast even w/o those errors I had yesterday...Duplicating another 2 TB drive and after 14 hours, only halfway through and averahe throuhput of a dismal 15.3 megabytes / second. This is drive to drive within the N40L
