Data Migration is most of the impotanat activity which we may perform in the data center, in this process we need to copy the data from one location to another location and it can be a remote location as well. We need to copy the data without any data lose, so let see the steps to follow the process with the help of Robocopy Utility as follow:-

For Data Copy we need have correct Source Location and Destination Location

For example here we have Source as: C:Program FilesAdobe Download Assistant

Data Migration

And the Destination is as:$UsersJoy Storagefolder with space

Data Migration

Now we need to setup the system for the copy

Open command prompt

Type a command as “ subst [driver letter] source location” note : you need to use “folder name” were you have space in folder name.

Now you can go to my computer and see that there wills new drive as N: which will point towards my source location (C:ISOFile share test)

Data Migration

Now you need to map the destination location by using net use command as below

Data Migration

Now your source is N: and destination is Z:

Start robocopy

Data Migration
