Has anyone heard of running Robocopy mirroring deleting source file information? Is it possible?

Has anyone heard of running Robocopy mirroring deleting source file information? I know the mirroring switch for Robocopy will delete information from the destination side so it’s equal to the source but I have heard Roble copping mirroring can cause the source data to be deleted.
So question is has anyone heard of Robocopy mirroring deleting source data while mirroring data to destination storage.

Please paste ALL of the robocopy switches you used.

The only thing that would make robocopy delete files from the source is if the /MOV (or /MOVE) switch is used; /MIR or /PURGE will only delete files in the target.

Agreed with oBdA... Never had an issue with anything touched on the source drive except telling it to move or update archive bit etc.
