Just run robocopy again? Depending on your settings.
Do you know why those were skipped?

No. But if something was already there, would robocopy skip it or overwrite it?

That's utterly normal for robocopy; these are files (same size, same time) and folders (same name) that already existed in the target folder, and these will be skipped by default. No need to be alarmed.
You could run it again with /IS (Include Same), which would copy even files tagged as same, but that's just a waste of time.
If you run the script again, you'll find that now most, if not all, files will be skipped.
