    I have an older dual HDD enclosure that I cannot set up for mirroring with windows 7.

    Can someone help me with a robocopy script that will initially back up all the data from one of the drives to the other, then only the changing files after the first run?

    Thank you in advance.

    The same command will do both - and it creates a mirror backup, removing any folders and files from the target that do not exist in the source.

    d: is the source and e: is the target

    This is untested: test it on a couple of USB sticks with test data on them first, as it can wipe the target drive very easily too.

    Code:
    robocopy "d:\" "e:\" /mir
