Use Multi-threaded Robocopy and Bypass Windows Interference

Robocopy “w:\.” “x:\.” /S /R:1 /W:10 /MT:16

/S = subdirectories that are not empty

/R = number of times to retry copying a file

/W = wait time between retries in seconds

/MT = number of threads

Plus a bunch of other options that prevent you from having to click “OK” a bazillion times.
