Robocopy Freezes on Windows 2008 R2
Posted on 2010-11-17
I am trying to do a simple copy operation. I have a large job to do and have just been trying to test before I start the actual copying. But every time I run robocopy, it freezes after about 45MB or data, and I have to reboot the server to kill the process. Robocopy is run on a Windows 2008 R2 Standard box, copying data to it from a Windows 2003 Standard box.
This is the string I used:
robocopy \\fileserver1\D$\SYS\groups\common\arts d:\SYS /COPYALL /MIR /NFL /NDL /LOG+:test.txt /NP
Of course the log file said nothing helpful and same for event logs. I did some searching and found LOTS of people complaing about the same issue, most of them Vista users, but some where using Windows 2008. Has anyone experienced this problem and know if a solution?
