Copy with Robocopy on Server 2012
Posted on 2015-01-10
On Server1 (Server 2003) I created a Test folder, shared it and gave it some unique permissions. I added a couple of files and folders giving them unique permissions as well.
I wish to get this folder over to Server2 (Server 2012 R2).
I tried the following command from Server2 in the hopes of getting this to Server2 D drive:
robocopy \\Server1\test d:\ /E /J /COPYALL /DCOPY:DAT >c:\robo.log
Only the contents (and their permissions) of test copy over... not the test folder itself. I then tried:
robocopy \\Server1\test d:\test /E /J /COPYALL /DCOPY:DAT >c:\robo.log
A test directory was created and contents copied... but the unique permission of test itself was not copied nor was it shared (retaining shared permissions).
Can Robocopy replicate shares?
