I have been reading robo copy how to and in all this, I need to know the exact command line to robo copy the guys drive to a shared folder. I need all his data. Now I assume this will not copy system files or is there a command to do that as well. One command to copy the entire drive and do not care about empty folders.

Not necessary but I do include quotation to minimize path errors.
