    Using Windows 10. I recently discovered robocopy and that robocopy can create a copy of an entire drive but with empty files (0 KB filesizes) using the command:

    robocopy {source} {destination} /create /e

    I wanted to know if it is possible to sync files using this "backup". For example,

    1. I create an "empty" copy of an external drive with the above command onto my laptop's drive (aka local copy).
    2. I sort the files, that is, add/delete/move files in this local copy.
    3. I sync with the external drive such that the actual non-empty (non - 0KB) files in the external drive are synced the way I sorted them in the local copy.

    If it is possible, please guide me on how to achieve the same. Google is useless for such specific queries. Thanks in advance.
