Please tell more.And incidentally, in preference to W7's Xcopy I always XXcopy my
data/user files to an external HD. That way they are immediately
accessible. I have the necessary XXcopy commands ready on a Word
document with its own shortcut on the desktop. Nice and neat!
The only files XXcopy cannot deal with (at least the freebie version) is
filenames with more than 256 characters including the path. And that is
no problem for me.
I once had DR DOS, which had some useful variants like XDel, which don't seem
to work in Windows XP or 7.
I still use a useful utility that dates back to 1984 or so, called bac.com.
It copies files, but only when the size or date differ. I would have expected
that M$ would long ago have included such a command in their operating system,
but they haven't. Unfortunately bac doesn't work with long file names, so I
try to keep filenames to the 8.3 pattern.
