robocopy data transfer for only new updates

Every DBA knows about of these asks when we need to transfer the updates and not the complete data every time. eg Logshipping transaction logs need to be copied between two cluster. How to achieve this goal.

robocopy \\SourceServer\Sourcefolder \\DestinationServer\Destinationfolder /Z /S /MIR

Switch /MIR is to apply only new updates.
Switch /S is to apply all the file levels -recursive in the folder.

Most of the readers of this blog also read "robocopy data transfer is very sluggish" to understand the use of /Z in this scenario so linking them here:
