I am attempting to copy a folder and all of its contents from one server to a virtual server  located on a SAN.

Using a robocopy script of :

ROBOCOPY "\\2003_SERVER\D$\Imagestorage" "\\2008_SERVERB\D$\Imagestorage" /s /e /copyall /purge /timfix /r:0 /log:C:\Users\otto.domain\Desktop\RoboCopy\ImageStorage\LogImagestorage.txt

Results in the following:

ERROR 5 (0x00000005) Getting File System Type of Source \\PRINTSERVER\D$\Imagestorage\
Access is denied.

   Source - \\PRINTSERVER\D$\Imagestorage\
     Dest : \\PRINTSERVERB\D$\Imagestorage\

    Files : *.*
          
  Options : *.* /S /E /COPYALL /TIMFIX /PURGE /R:0 /W:30

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

NOTE : NTFS Security may not be copied - Source may not be NTFS.

ERROR 5 (0x00000005) Accessing Source Directory \\PRINTSERVER\D$\Imagestorage\
Access is denied.

Need some help getting past this error. TIA

I would also recommend that you do this from the Windows 2008 server since it has a newer version of robocopy you can use the /MT switch for multiple threads.
