Windows 2008 R2 Windows Server Backup permissions and Robocopy
Posted on 2011-05-05
I have scripts running in the Scheduler that run Robocopy to do file backups disk to disk. I am using the /B option to run the copy in backup mode. When I throw that switch, robocopy logs the error "You do not have the Backup and Restore Files user rights." I am running as the domain administrator. I have checked the box for "Run with highest privileges", and still the error. Once I get rid of the /B, it works fine. I would like to be able to use the switch. Not sure what is missing in this equation.
