    xcopy directory problem


    In Windows 10 I open cmd and entered

    d:

    mkdir "backup of disk e"

    cd "backup of disk e"

    xcopy /e/i/h/c f:/ .


    everything seemed to work fine.

    However, the directory does not show in the finder, nor in cmd using dir.

    If I do

    dir "backup of disk e"

    I do get a listing exactly like expected, showing a directory "backup of disk e" with all files.


    What is going on? This would have worke fine in Windows XP or 7

    :)

    XCopy not working on Win10

    Hi,

    There is a thread on this topic but it doesn't show a resolution.

    Has something changed where xcopy doesn't work on Win10?

    I am looking to copy files and I can't get even the simpliest .bat file to work. Copying 1 file to another folder on the C directory.

    @EchoOff xcopy C:\files\test.bat C:\files-to\

    Any suggestions are appreciated!

    thanks,

    joan

    Xcopy syntax for multiple source directories

    Very good, I will use it.

    In cmd, xcopy help states "source Specifies the file(s) to copy." but does not detail how to list them.

    is the squiggle in %%~a intentional or a typo?
