Plan your SMB data migrations.


The show command shows all SMB shares available on the server with the permissions and space available.

  • xcp show \\<SMB file server IP/FQDN>

  • xcp show

Run xcp help show for more details.


The scan command recursively scans the entire SMB share and lists all the files at the end of the scan.

Note During the scan operation, you can use the -preserve-atime flag with the scan command to preserve access time at the source .


  • xcp scan \\SMB server\share1

  • xcp scan

Run xcp help scan for more details.

Optionally, use File Analytics to view the results graphically.
