Why would you use XCopy for that?
You *COULD* just use our own tech (and we have peer download, byte-level check-point restart, multicast, etc etc) to help with that.
You may want to just attach it as an "additional file" and/or make use of this snippet here -- How to use PEDownloader.exe to Duplicate / Troubleshoot Software Distribution .
If you've got management suite, you've got good software distribution tech. No reason to try & re-invent the wheel .
As an aside ...
If you're dealign with FAT partitions (I hope not, but "just in case") - be aware that FAT-32 has a size limit of 4 GB (if memory serves).
You may generally want to break down a file like that into 1 GB or 2 GB chunks (and decompress everything locally via zip or whatever you prefer). Makes it more likely so that "if a single thing goes bad on the network" you don't have to re-download the whole 9 GB but "just the missing chunk" as it were.
Many thanks for your reply.
