Hello. I have an 8TB file system.

The file system is on a slow disk. I want to move it to an SSD.

What is the best way to do this ? When I did it with robocopy, it was noticed that some files were lost.

    Hi,

    The normal reason that robocopy fails to copy a file if it's currently held open by another process. The best approach is close all open sessions and run the robocopy command again to copy the delta.

    Gary.
