Robocopy only using 2 threads on server 2012 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am attempting to make use of the /MT: switch with robocopy on server 2012 when moving a large file. No matter what I set the MT switch to when I check in task manager it says robocopy is only using 2 threads. If I do the same on my Windows 7 desktop I can the thread count increasing in task manager when I select a higher value for the MT switch.

    Is there any reason it would stick to using 2 threads?

    command used: robocopy /COPYALL /MT:32 Source Dest *.*
