I am new to Robocopy and have been scouring over articles and technical forums. I seem to have the basic copy working fine from the testing I have been doing, however, my log file is virtually complete junk. The test script I am running currently is:
c:\robocopy.exe "C:\RobocopyTest" "J:\Root" /mir /v /tee /Log+:"c:\FreeNasBackup.txt"
The log is created ok, but when I open it, it seems mostly like a bunch of jumbled up information, and nothing like the examples I see on the internet.
The following is the output from the above command:
C:\RobocopyTest\J:\Root*.* . /V /TEE /S /E /DCOPY:DA /COPY:DAT /PURGE /MIR /R:1000000 /W:30 C:\RobocopyTest\Microsoft-Windows-Dhcpv6-Client%4Admin.evtxMicrosoft-Windows-Kernel-Boot%4Operational.evtxMicrosoft-Windows-Kernel-EventTracing%4Admin.evtxMicrosoft-Windows-Kernel-Power%4Thermal-Operational.evtxMicrosoft-Windows-Kernel-ShimEngine%4Operational.evtxC:\RobocopyTest\Layer1\Key Management Service.evtxMicrosoft-Windows-Application-Experience%4Program-Compatibility-Assistant.evtxMicrosoft-Windows-AppXDeploymentServer%4Restricted.evtxC:\RobocopyTest\Layer1\Layer2\Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-ShimEngine%4Operational.evtxMicrosoft-Windows-Kernel-StoreMgr%4Operational.evtxMicrosoft-Windows-Kernel-WHEA%4Errors.evtxMicrosoft-Windows-NCSI%4Operational.evtxNew Text Document.txt 3 2 1 0 0 0 13 13 0 0 0 0 816.0 k 816.0 k 0 0 0 0
This is being run on Windows Server 2016. For now, I would like to start with as much information in the log as possible, and then cut back as I figure out information that is not needed. I just need it to be presented in a layout that is quicker, and easier to read. Any suggestions on where I went wrong?
