    Hi there, I’m trying to copy data from a server to an external hard drive connected to the server, this is for archiving purposes. Im running the robocopy command below but each time I’ve ran this it misses about 6 folders and around 30 files. The backup is around 550gb, anyone got any idea, is my command wrong, log doesnt report any failures etc

    robocopy “e:archive” “f:destination” /mir /copyall /r:1 /w:1 /log+:f:Logsarchive18.06.2016.txt

    Just a thought – what format is the external HDD and what size are the missed files?
    (Thinking FAT32 file size limits….)

    Hi there, the external drive is 2TB formatted with ntfs.

    Managed to drill down a million folders on each drive to compare, found that folder x would say 2 files and folder x on external drive would say 0 files but when I opened the folder, the files were there, very odd and no the files arent hidden. No idea what the problem is.
