    copying files in Windows2000

    In Windows2000/2003, is there a way to copy large set of files and folders without getting interrupted when there is a file in use? I'd like it to skip those files and continue the copying process.

    Doesn't the XCopy utility have a switch for this... would /Y not work??

    A more sophisticated, yet widely used option in the corporate environment is the Volume Shadow Copy Technology utilities that come in the Windows Resource Kits.

      I wanted to avoid getting the prompt since it takes a while to copy that stuff. I want to be away while this is being copied and not have to come back to find it stopped in less than half way through with the prompt.

      Let me try xcopy with /y and see if that works.

      thanks.

        Sky, try robocopy. It comes with Nt resource kit. Its mainly used to sync files (i guess ur doing the same thing) and there are tons of options for it. There are other utilities out there (shareware) but this one is free.
