The Robocopy command and operation
Posted on 2012-03-14
We run the follow command to copy everything in a Windows 2008 R2 volume to a folder and try to restore it later on from that folder, we do this:
C:\>robocopy J:\ x:\J_drive /FP /E /COPYALL /R:5 /W:1 /ETA /Log:c:\robocopy\robolog_J_backup.txt /TEE /V /Save:c:\robocopy\Job_J_backup
C:\>robocopy L:\ x:\L_drive /FP /E /COPYALL /R:5 /W:1 /ETA /Log:c:\robocopy\robolog_L_backup.txt /TEE /V /Save:c:\robocopy\Job1_L_backup
But when we do this, we found that:
1) we have to create the x:\J_drive in advance before this command works.
2) when the copy start, the folder J_drive will be hiden and it is not unhide anymore.
Any way to make the fold unhide again ? once the robocopy was start, it seems the owner is administrator, not the account I run this command.
