RoboCopy a Single File to See Accurate Progress/Time Estimates

RoboCopy is used as a tool to copy folders but it can also be used to copy single files if required.

This is handy if you’re copying a large file (such as an ISO or WIM image) and want some sort of feedback from a command prompt on how it’s progressing (not something that happens with xcopy or copy).

Say you want to copy a file called BigFile.iso from the root of the C:\ Drive to the root of the E:\ drive you could use the following command

robocopy C:\ E:\ BigFile.iso
