I am trying to use robocopy ver 3.1.2 to copy a large directory and files to antoher server (both are windows2003). I set my source path U:\Data and Taget to P:\ when I hit run it says it finished which took about 2 seconds but did not copy any of my files over.

What I want to do is copy all those files over along with the file/security permission. Basically duplicate everything from one server to the other with the exception of the drive mapping. What copy options do I need to check off in the copy options tab
