Most important, I think, is the fact that it can resume where it previously left off whenever the copy process is somehow cancelled. I also like the fact that it can synchronize two folders. Please, check out this Wikipedia article for a list of other important features.
Robocopy is certainly a better tool than xcopy. I just wonder why Microsoft didn't just enhance xopy with its features. Countless scripts will have to be rewritten if xcopy is not supported in the future, anymore.
