I have a NTFS partition that has a folder that holds over 5 million directories. Each directory contains more directories and then files.
I am moving to SSD and I need to copy all these data over to the new drive, but I am running into issues.
Directories like this will crash Windows Explorer, so I didn't even try it.
My first attempt is robocopy, which has worked well in the past. But when I tried to do the copy it just never started, even after leaving it for days. I think it was trying to index everything before starting the copy.
How do you copy directories of this size?
