If possible,  on the root folder,  security permission add full control  for domain admins.

HI Member_2_7965308

and in case under this root folder there is special folder that the inheriting permissions disabled

you think add full control on the top folder is enough  ?

I would suggest you run robocopy for at least twice.  Then review the latest logs for any failed copy log.

Then, grant the necessary access to copy those files which failed initially.

It would save time in checking all the folders for any no-inheriting permissions.
