    Why does Robocopy fail this folder?


    I have this weird folder in my windows 10 system drive, this doesn't seem to be a junction point so I don't know what it is, please see picture. I am trying to copy it with robocopy from an admin CLI from a WindowsPE off a Windows Installation Media USB stick, with the following command: Robocopy c:\testHere2\ f:\backuptestHere2 /MIR /B /R:0 /NFL /NDL /XJ /NP /XA:O /MIN:1 /XA:S /log:f:\testHere2.txt The errors Im getting are: NOTE : Security may not be copied - Destination might not support persistent ACLs. 2021/08/14 08:39:32 ERROR 0 (0x00000000) Copying File c:\testHere2\a.txtThe operation completed successfully. 2021/08/14 08:39:32 ERROR 0 (0x00000000) Copying File c:\testHere2\george fn.rbxlThe operation completed successfully. 2021/08/14 08:39:32 ERROR 0 (0x00000000) Copying File c:\testHere2\Jorge Antonio's Notebook.urlThe operation completed successfully. For some reason it is failing to copy these files (it copies them empty), however, it copies them when I run the command from an admin Windows PowerShell inside Windows. I guess the line on top indicates a permissions issue? Anyone could help clarify what kind of folder this is and I why robocopy fails from CLI? Windows10 21H1

  2. Robocopy copies folders not in Documents to my backup Documents folder on 2nd drive.

    Two things:

    • You must surroound your folder names with double quotes:

      robocopy "C:\Users\my name\Documents . . ." "D:\Dropbox\my name\Documents
      . . ."
    • Robocopy often hides target folders, causing users to think they are missing. Look for hidden folders.
