    Copy only new & modified files in Windows using a Robocopy alternative replacement tool

    This post will tell you how to copy only files that have been recently modified, leaving out the older ones totally.

    We will show you how to do this using Robocopy and also an alternative software, Copywhiz.

    What is Copywhiz?

    Enhance your file-copy experience with Copywhiz as it lets you to have more flexibility & more control over the file-copying process. Here is how Copywhiz makes file copying a breeze:

  • Copy only new or modified files

  • Several more hidden nuggets designed to make your file-copy task easier.
  • Steps to copy only changed files (new and modified)

    Using Robocopy

    The Robocopy command Robocopy Source [Destination] /XO :[YYYYMMDD] copies all Source files changed on or after the specified date only. This command-line option allows you to update files that have changed.

    For Ex: To copy all the files in the directory ‘E:data’ that are modified on or after 1 st January 2018 to the folder ‘E:\backup’, the following command line will be used:

    Robocopy E:\data E:\backup /xo 20180101

    You can do this using Xcopy too. Here is the article explaining that.

    However, commands like Robocopy are not straightforward. System administrators may be able to use. But common users will find it difficult. Instead, I will show you how to do it very quickly/easily using Copywhiz.

    Using Copywhiz

    Here is a short video that depicts how to do it easily in Windows using Copywhiz:

    1. Go to Windows File Explorer, select the files from the source folder, right-click and choose Copywhiz–>Copy as shown below:

    2. Right-click inside the destination folder where you wish to copy the files and select Copywhiz–>Paste Advanced.

    3. Copywhiz Window will open. Click on ‘Advanced Settings’ button and select “Automatically identify & paste only new or modified files” and click ‘OK’.

    4. If the same folder already exists in the destination, then only new or modified files will be replaced and the others will be skipped, saving a lot of time.

    Copywhiz automatically detects new & changed files making the whole process very quick.

    Alternatively, you can copy files based on specific dates (date modified, date created, date accessed).

    To Conclude

    What could take several hours if done manually, Copywhiz completes it in few seconds! Just, specify the file date type and date range so that the files are copied based on the date criteria.

    This feature is very useful while sharing/uploading only recently modified files or even to pick latest music/pictures from multiple folders.
