I want to use robocopy to copy a directory structure on a windows 2003 server to an external hard drive. I have the job scheduled to run nightly and each night I want the external hard drive to have an exact copy of what is on the server.
My robocopy command is:
robocopy "path here to the top-level folder" "path to the external drive" /E /COPYALL /PURGE /Log: "path to log file"
When I look at the log I see
Dirs - 0 copied 981 skipped
Files - 10 copied 20708 skipped
Bytes - 80 copied 7.098 skipped
Why is it skipping files at all? COPYALL should copy everything and skip nothing.
