Hello Experts

      I am trying to use Robocopy to copy my sql server folders and subdirectory from one drive to another but not having very much luck :-(

Tree structure:

Microsoft SQL Server
       - MSSQL.1
            - MSSQL
                  - Backup
                     - Data
                        - Analysis Services
                           - Engine
                              - Integrated Samples
                                 - Integrated Services
                                    - Notification Services
                                       - Replication
                                          - Reporting Services

How would I go about doing this?

Thanks for your time today

Do the /mir and /copyall options not work for you?

robocopy /mir /copyall D:\MSSQL.1 E:\MSSQL.1

The /copyall option copies all permissions.  The /mir option tells it to mirror the diroctory structure.

The syntax should actually have the options after the source and destination.

robocopy D:\MSSQL.1 E:\MSSQL.1/mir /copyall
