Hi Guys,

I'm trying to Mirror 2 drive using Robocopy however the Destination folder seems to be hidden. Robocopy says that it has successfully copied all files and when I compare the files on both destinations, they are all Identical however I'm not able to view the folder on destination

After trying a few command I've now tried the below command but still no success.

robocopy "E:" "H:\Backup" /mir /A-:SH /A+:H /w:5 /log:"H:Robocopylog.txt"

My last hope is you.

Thank you.

Drive roots are system drives, and when Robocopy copies it, it automatically copies the attributes too.

To make your drive visible again, open up an administrative command prompt and type

attrib -s -h H:\Backup

It's now visible! :D
