Robocopy Error - Access Denied
Posted on 2011-04-29
Last week I wrote a simple Robocopy script and saved it as Robo3.cmd on my Windows 2003 Ent server. The script is intended to copy the Backup Exec Exchange and bkf files to an attached 2TB USB for off site backup. It worked perfect for three days running as a scheduled Windows task using the domain administrator login and pw for credentials.
Yesterday, I decided to make a master copy of the backup files and replaced the USB drive with a fresh duplicate drive formated as NTFS like the others. After 5 hours of copying files, it copied the recycle bin and tried copying the System Volume Information which started a continious loop of errors every 30 seconds. How do I stop the recycle bin and System Volume Information from being copied?
Here is that portion of the log file.
