I'm trying to use robocopy to copy some folders.  They are extremely large and I'm getting errors that theres not enough server storage to process this command.  So I"m trying to do one folder at a time.  However, when I write the command instead of just copying that folder it's doing the  entire drive.   This is what I'm using..
robocopy \\server\drive letter\folder\folder\folder\folder\and finally folder I want to copy Y:\folder /E /ZB /TEE - For now I switched to Xcopy but I think robocopy is faster.

robocopy "\\server\drive letter\folder\folder\folder\folder\and finally folder I want to copy" "Y:\folder" /E /ZB

OK it's showing me a screen that says DIR Total copied but nothing is showing up on the drive.

Does it list that files were copied?
Do you have write permissions to the target?

Btw, /TEE is for writing simultaneously to the screen and log file - you weren't using a log file, so it's irrelevant.
