I am trying to get robocopy to work.

The syntax is simple
robocopy \\server\data \\backupsever\G /MIR

Doing this i get an Error 5 creating destination directory. I have also tried /B which gets me an Error 5 access denied.

Running as Domain Admin all rights to all folders and drivers are full control.

Any ideas?

Robocopy needs to "log on as a service" it should be granted "Adminstrator
Rights" to log on as a service for any areas that you want to backup.  In
some cases this would be the equivalent of a Domain Admin with rights to log
on as a service.

"G" seems like a manually added share (or was that a typo?); have you checked the *share* permissions for this share? W2k3 default when creating a new share is Read Only for Everyone; make sure you give Everyone Full Access for the share permissions, do the access restrictions with NTFS.
