    Hi @Ravi Chandran ,

    By default Robocopy copies files that have changed (in size or modified date), if a file has not changed, Robocopy will skip the file.
    In general the "MODIFIED" means that the file in the in the destination is older than the file in the source, so Robocopy has copied the file changes.
