Hi,

I have this script looking like this:
robocopy K:\K10S K:\Archive /MOVE /MINAGE:1

Open in new window


It is working fine except that when the root folder is empty the script removes the folder totally and I want to avoid that. How can I do it?

Thanks for help!

Peter

Since you're not copying subfolders, you can simply use /MOV instead of /MOVE.
