To update, this has been working great. It's taking a few minutes to backup my archives for 100 gbs and more.

This is for data back up, but there are a few apps that do system images if you want. Including windows 7 natively via. backup and restore center, clonezilla, EasUs todo backup, etc. just to name a few.

Robocopy works really well, but it would be even better if there was a switch to kill the entire job (or at least move on to the next part of the batch job) if any locked or inaccessible files are found. This limitation has caused us some serious headaches.

Go back and read the first post in this thread. I've outlined a way for you to run Robocopy AND deal with files that are locked or in use, with the help of another little tweak called ShadowSpawn.

You should be able to just close it if you want to stop the operation.

I just found a cool tool similar to robocopy's purpose, I am still messing with it though. The mirror option seems good. Now I need to see if I can set a schedule.
