Bulk move large numbers of large files

I will shortly need to move a large number (20,000) very large (20-30Mb) image files and associated tiny xmp sidecar files from one internal SATA6 hard drive to another.

MS file explorer will make a meal of this so any suggestions for alternatives please? I have several folders each containing many thousands of files.

ps I wonder if a live boot Linux would be faster???

  1. try syncback to do your file transfer. You can select multiple directories so if it is scatted accross your hard drive that is not a problem, and it has many compare options for you as well.
  2. Use robocopy, it's built in.
