XCOPY or ROBOCOPY wont run in batch file

Last Modified: 2017-11-13
I have this old batch file that I used to upgrade a software and since it is time for another one I have tried creating a GPO and assigned it under User Configuration>Windows Settings>Logon.

But when testing with a user logging on the batch file wont run but when manually clicking the file it runs perfectly fine!

Here is the code:  xcopy "Source" "Destination" /S /C /I /H /R /Y

Users have a full time mapped drive from where the source file is copied to the local drive C:\Folder

Note that robocopy is the same and doesn't run automatically.
