Hi, when I try to put /unilog on robocopy command switch, it gives invalid parameter error.  I have the Robocopy version XP010.  When I type in Robocopy /? to see the switches, unilog is not part of the option.  I do however see this option on this website: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc733145(WS.10).aspx
In order for our VB script to email the log to us, it needs to be in unicode.  I see couple of solutions:

1. make Robocopy output the log into unicode or
2. make VB Script or Kixtart to email us the log as an attachment

Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

You can get Robocopy version XP026 by installing Robocopy GUI.  The installer places the updated command-line version in %systemroot%\System32.
