Since Pete is speaking of Robocopy, and it comes with the W2K3 Resource Kit, I thought I would help and provide the link to the download site for these tools..   MS has provided these tools free, which is very much appreciated in the community..  :)

Free Tool: Port Scanner

Check which ports are open to the outside world. Helps make sure that your firewall rules are working as intended.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

Anybody see anything wrong with this command?

robocopy \\data05\d$\users \\data05new\d$\users c*.* /E /SEC

Obviously I'm trying to copy over all of the user folders that begin with C, but it is copying everything beginning with A and I cant find anything wrong with my command.

Thanks caw..  but I believe we really should have split these points with Pete, as he did suggest the answer long before me..  If you want to go back and do this, just post a comment in Community Support and they will be glad to assist you in this...     I think it the only fair thing to do..

No problem.  Sorry.  Its the first question I've accepted.  Didnt know what the process was.  I chose yours because it was the "most" helpful in that it actually provided the link.  However you are correct, both responses did provide the answer to my question.
