NAME Start-BitsTransfer SYNOPSIS Creates a new Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) transfer job. SYNTAX Start-BitsTransfer [-Source] [[-Destination] ] [-Asynchronous] [-Authentication ] [-Credential ] [-Description ] [-DisplayName ] [-Priority ] [-ProxyAuthentication ] [-ProxyBypass ] [-ProxyCredential ] [-ProxyList ] [-ProxyUsage ] [-RetryInterval ] [-RetryTimeout ] [-Suspended] [-TransferType ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [] DESCRIPTION The Start-BitsTransfer cmdlet creates a new BITS transfer job to transfer one or more files between a client computer and a server. The TransferType parameter specifies the direction of the transfer. By default, after the cmdlet begins the transfer, the command prompt is not available until the transfer is complete or until the transfer enters an error state. If the state of the returned BitsJob object is Error, the error code and description are contained in the object and can be used for analysis. The Start-BitsTransfer cmdlet supports downloading multiple files from a server to a client computer, but it does not generally support uploading multiple files from a client computer to a server. If you need to upload more than one file, you can use the Import-CSV cmdlet to pipe the output to the Add-BitsFile cmdlet to upload multiple files. Or, if you need to upload more than one file, consider using a cabinet file (.cab) or a compressed file (.zip).
