I have a directory on a server \\server\folder\folder\folder\folder and I want to copy that folder to Y:\folder
I'm trying to use robocopy I'm doing the following:
robocopy \\server\folder\folder\folder\folder Y:\folder /E /S /ZB /Copyall /TEE

Is this correct?

The /E and /S switches are mutually exclusive.   Use one or the other, but not both.  The /COPYALL switch is redundant with either /E or /S so it's not needed at all.

This will probably do just fine:
robocopy \\server\folder\folder\folder\folder Y:\folder /E /ZB /TEE

It may over-write something on the destination, if that file already exists there.  It won't delete anything from the source.
