I am running robocopy batch file from server 2003 to copy a folder from server1 (server 2008 r2) onto a nas drive.

robocopy /e /xo /ts /tee /r:0   /log:c:\backuplogs\robologs\folder-1.doc  "\\server1\folder-1"  "\\backupserver\backup share\backupfolder"      

However i get the error 53- getting file system type of source - the network path was not found. What someone explain what is wrong in my command. Thanks
