    Transfer files to a new USB thumb drive

    I have around 60GB of music on a thumb drive that's physically broken and just barely in one piece using crazy glue. I need to transfer the contents to a new thumb drive. What's the most reliable way of doing so? Older PC with USB 2.0 available only.

    Is there a command prompt to do it in one go? There are dozens of sub folders and hundreds of files so I really don't want to do it piecemeal.

    You could use Robocopy.

    #6 Mirror directories

    Robocopy "X:" "Y:" /MIR /FFT /Z /XA:H /W:5

    If you don't want to use Robocopy, you could try something like Teracopy instead.

    Hmm, I typed X:\ and Y:\, but for some reason the slash was removed.

    X: is the source, and Y: is the target.
