Copying large files
 
What is the best way to copy large amounts of data from one source to another?

What do you mean now? over a network or on the one node? I use a portable hard drive between devices because I donít want to use up the bandwidth on my network, (if the file is bigger than 100 megs.)

The files are over 100 gigs (yes gigs)....and I want to schedule a copy over night from a server to a portable hard drive...

What are your options, Doc. Gigabit LAN, USBII, FireWire, eSATA?

Can't you put the drive directly in to the server using a SATA lead?

Hmmm....I have not thought about that...

What about xcopy? How good is that?

Not tried that. I just drag and drop. I've not found any programs that make copying files any faster. I've only tried a couple though.

I'm more or less interested in preserving the long file names and the integrity of the files being copied.

Ah, so speed isn't the main concern? Are you wanting something that copys and checks for errors at the same time?

That would be nice....

You can use the command line you know. I have never even see a windows server, but it should be rudimentary, and easily done.

The v switch verifies the written files, just be careful with your syntax. ;)
