Samba share causes Windows Robocopy /mir to keep rewriting the files.
I have a Samba share that I am copying files to with robocopy /mir. Problem is when I try and sync that with robocopy /mir it copies all files again even though they haven't changed.
Robocopy /mir works fine on NTFS to NTFS copies so I guess must be something to do with the use of Samba, I can't see why robocopy should be detecting all these files as changed when they haven't been.
It's probably a timestamping problem. NTFS and extx timestamp differently, so robocopy is most likely detecting a difference and flagging the file as changed.
Have you tried the /xo and/or /fft switches?
Yep tried that currently using:
