I am in the middle of a server migration and need to copy all files and directories from various partitions and drives
I am using robocopy in  this format:

robocopy d:\ e:\BackupDrive /ZB /W:2 /R:1 /E

I consistently get a large number of files not being copied over - exchange store files etc
I asssume this is due to permissions or that files are in use

Is there a way round this

You might want to try a different utility as robocopy will not copy the open / in use files.


Give gs copy pro a shot.

Just another suggestion.....

I've used Free File Sync in my environment with any issues. It's portable, free, fast and also copies over NTFS permissions. It also copies locked files.

About: http://sourceforge.net/projects/freefilesync/
Download: http://www.fosshub.com/FreeFileSync.html

I highly recommend it.

Best free copy program I know that uses VSS is Shadow Copy from from www.runtime.org

As for the Exchange ,I would use the built in Exchange backup in windows.
