Need some assistance with Robocopy.

I'm trying to restore files from Azure backup to my C drive using Robocopy.
This is the command I'm using:  robocopy F:\Projects\2020\2209001-PCO Lift C:\Restore From Backup\01-24-2020\Server\robocopy-test /E

I get the following error "Invalid Parameter #3 : "Robocopy-Test /E"

If I use a simple command like this: robocopy C:\folder2 C:\folder1 /E  it works fine.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks,
cja
