Hi, I would like for P. Sisk to help me with this please.  I thought I had followed your instructions correctly but apparently I didn't.  What I am trying to do is transfer a folder that is in Drive F called movie clips F to a folder which is in Drive G called movie clips G.  I believe it has something to do with the way the command line starts out before I start typing but am not sure.Pic-1.JPG  Is that the problem, or is there another issue?  Please look at Pic 1, Thanks.

because both paths contain spaces you have to enclose them in quotation marks
robocopy "f:\movie clips" "g:\movie clips" /s /e

you could have posted the text into a code block rather than using a picture

Thanks, I will try it.  I don't know what a "code block" is.

More specifically:
robocopy "f:\movie clips f" "g:\movie clips g" /s /mir

Open in new window


A "code block" is when you write your code in the Write Comment then select it and pick the CODE icon, like I did to my code in this comment.

Thanks for that.  Worked out fine.  Could you just explain what the /s /mir mean?

/mir
 
Mirrors a directory tree (equivalent to /e plus /purge). For additional information, see Remarks.
