Robocopy GUI

Robocopy is one of those utilities I use a lot for copying files across a network. It does what Xcopy et al doesn't - it handles network outages, and can be restarted. This makes it ideal for all  sorts of copy uses. Robocopy is found inside the Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit (a tool kit I install on all my systems). As Rodney Burke notes in his blog, Robocopy is a command line tool - but now there is a GUI. You can download Robocopy GUI here!

The download is an executable file that unzips to an MSI that you can then run. Yet another way of deploying software, but it works I suppose. The GUI is a little basic - and it sure helps if you know the switches for the Robocopy console command.

Thanks to Rodney Burke for his tip about RoboCopy's GUI.

GSCopy Pro v6.0 (RoboCopy Alternative) with Open File Agent
GSCopyPro is a single command-line tool (CLI) that can copy, replicate and move files from one folder to another. This folder can be on the same machine/ server or another server elsewhere. What makes GSCopyPro stand out from other competitors is the fact it works on 32-bit as well as 64-bit systems and has no restrictions. It can easily be scheduled to run as a scheduled task and fully automated. GSCopyPro also comes with an open file agent which can copy files that are locked/ opened by other processes. This feature is supported in all windows versions from widows XP/ 2003 and later.
