I wanted to copy a certain folder with lots of child folders and different permissions from one server shared resource to another server with more shared resource space. I am thinking that RoboCopy is best for this process. I want to make sure it copies all root and child contents with the same exact permissions.
I just downleaded Microsoft Robocopy gui on the target server. for the source path i used \\servername\folder and target path d:\folder. clicked on copy options tab and checked /s, /sec, /move and /copyall. Clicked on run and it immediately said, job finished but only copied 1/2 the contents. I thought it was still running in the background so i waited.
1. is there a way to see a progress bar? i saw lots of articles reprogamming the program.
2. I waited a while and it seems to have gotten stuck and did not move the whole thing. does it not like the \\servername\folder? does it prefer a mapped drive?
