that shouldn't have anything to do with missing files/directories right?
Should be quick to find out. Do it by robocopying one of the missing folders, i.e. so you don't have to do the whole thing.

BeyondCompare v4. It's a GUI. It tells you what's good and what's not.

We use it for all of our file/folder migrations large and small.

Oh, note your log filename breaks up such that instead of *.* a portion of the log filename is being set as the search criteria, filter for the tikes.

Add '*.*' before /e of your command, or the modified example NVIT provided.
