IT LOL: by default, robocopy retries to copy a file up to… one year, each file?

15 novembre 2017

Today I was playing with robocopy to move some terabytes on our LAN, and found this in the robocopy /? help:

::
:: Retry Options :
::
               /R:n :: number of Retries on failed copies: default 1 million.
               /W:n :: Wait time between retries: default is 30 seconds.

               /REG :: Save /R:n and /W:n in the Registry as default settings.

               /TBD :: wait for sharenames To Be Defined (retry error 67).

1 million retries after waiting 30 seconds between retries means that if one file (each copied file) is unavailable, you wait up to:

  • 30 million seconds, eg:
  • 500k minutes, eg:
  • 8333 hours, eg:
  • nearly 347 days, eg:
  • 1 year
  • really?
