Problem with .bat program copying files

I have a .bat program which copies files from one hard drive to another, it reads:

---
@echo off

echo Starting backup process...

xCopy /E/Y C:\BDotAttachments\*.*  E:\BDotDesktopBkp\BDotAttachments

if %errorlevel% gtr 0 (
  echo ERROR [%errorlevel%]: Backup process completed but with error(s).
) else (
  echo Backup process completed successfully.
)

pause
---

But when I run it I get the error attached. Please advice.

Add the /i switch so you don't get the prompt and it makes the directory automatically
