robocopy fails- error 53 - network path not found
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\robolog
.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

Usage :: ROBOCOPY source destination [file [file]...] [options]
Try (and make sure the log folder exists):
robocopy "\\server1\folder-1" "\\backupserver\backup share\backupfolder" /e /xo /ts /tee /r:0 /log:c:\backuplogs\robolog
Hi the logs folder do exist. What i have found is when i use the same parameters on different source and destination folders, on servers running server 2003, the copying works but it doesnt work on server 2008.
When you compared, you ran RoboCopy on the same machine (not the servers)?
While the 53 error occured, do you have access to both source and destination at exactly that moment?
