I am trying to use Robocop on a Windows 2008 server but for some reason it moves the destination folder to the recycling bin and continues to copy files to the bin, example in the log it shows this: {G:\$RECYCLE.BIN\S-1-5-21-1032887094-754113994-2803742109-1396}   the CMD I;m running is:  [robocopy G: I:\800i-oldG-drive /copyall /mir /log:c:\cp.txt /tee] I’m not why
Thanks

You're copying the full content of G:\, so naturally it will copy the recycle bin folder also.

try this with the XD parm that tells Robocopy to exclude a folder.

robocopy G: I:\800i-oldG-drive /copyall /mir /log:c:\cp.txt /tee \xd G:\$RECYCLE.BIN
