Robocopy Access is denied Error

In the middle of my Robocopy I got this message:
[2011/10/05 23:09:06 ERROR 5 (0x00000005) Copying File I:\System Volume Informati
on\MountPointManagerRemoteDatabase
Access is denied.
Waiting 30 seconds...]
Is there a way for me to make this continue coping?

Thanks

Do you need to copy the System Volume information folder?

When you start Robo Copy you should exclude that folder and the error will no longer appear.

How are you running robocopy?

I’m running Robocopy from the CMD prompt like this:
robocopy I: F:\Share_Dir2 /copyall /mir /log:c:\cp2.txt /tee
Will I have to stop this copy or is there a way to make it skip?

Did you run Robocopy as an administrator?
If you only what to run it from a comand prompt, not a batch file, right click on the CMD icone and select "run as administrator".

You could also add the /XD switch like:
/XD "System Volume Information"

This will tell robocopy not to copy "System Volume Information"

To run it as an administrator, not only your username must have administrators rights, but because of UAC in 2008, you must run it as an administrator as I discribed in 36922258.

Right click on the CMD icone and select "run as administrator".

It has nothing to do with from you are running it (C:\Users\administrator.ABC).

Cheers,

Hey,

You would put the /xd at the end of the robocopy command.

Here is the M$ doco on how to use it and all of its options.
