I have always used xcopy with the /d for anything with a newer date than the target.


If that's the goal, then this is how I've always used robocopy:
robocopy source target /MIR /R:0

Even though my backup set is measured in terabytes, the above only copies what's actually changed at the source (and deletes what's been removed), and only takes a few minutes. That's been reliable for me and that's what I've been using for nearly a decade.
