    Accepted Solution

    - Make sure to run the command from elevated command prompt.

    - Use this syntax and see:
    Setup.exe  /m:RecoverServer /IAcceptExchangeServerLicenseTerms

    If it still fails with "copied failed" then download setup once again and extract to another folder and execute above command.
