I am trying to copy over redirect profile directories \home\%username% from a 2008 Server R2 to a CIFShare on a NAS using Robocopy while applying the /e switch. Everything copies ok except for folders that have the lock sign over the folder. When trying to copy these the program echoes "access denied wait 30 seconds" and just repeats indefinitely. I realize these are currently being used by other users.
My question is does Robocopy have a switch or function in it that will allow these type of files/folders to be copied regardless of being in use or locked?
Robocopy can't copy files or folders that are in use. If you use robocopy, you'll need to work around that by just running more frequent robocopies and set the retry and warnings to a much lower number.
