Copying files from GAC using xcopy or Windows Explorer

use this command for copying files using a wildcard from the GAC to a local folder.
xcopy c:\windows\assembly\Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo*.dll c:\gacdll /s/r/y/c

The above command will continue even it encounters any “Access Denied” errors, thus copying over the required files.

To copy files using the Windows explorer just disable the GAC Cache Viewer by adding a entry to the registry:
Browse to “HKEY_LOCALMACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Fusion”
Add a Dword called DisableCacheViewer. Set the value of it to 1.

GSCopy Pro v6.0 (RoboCopy Alternative) with Open File Agent
GSCopyPro is a single command-line tool (CLI) that can copy, replicate and move files from one folder to another. This folder can be on the same machine/ server or another server elsewhere. What makes GSCopyPro stand out from other competitors is the fact it works on 32-bit as well as 64-bit systems and has no restrictions. It can easily be scheduled to run as a scheduled task and fully automated. GSCopyPro also comes with an open file agent which can copy files that are locked/ opened by other processes. This feature is supported in all windows versions from widows XP/ 2003 and later.
