Robocopy with hidden files (Network Steve Forum)
Robocopy with hidden files
Cool. Just a concern, using the /MIR switch will retain the security and permission on the files as well? I just need a better understanding before proceed, thanks.

Cool. Just a concern, using the /MIR switch will retain the security and permission on the files as well? I just need a better understanding before proceed, thanks. Robocopy fails to mirror file permissions but works for folder permissions. However, ROBOCOPY <source> <target> /MIR /SEC /SECFIX /MIR will replicate data and security (as /SEC is specified) for changed files, and /SECFIX will update just the security for unchanged files. Add /V to the command line if you want to see which files are having their security fixed without having their data copied. Here is a nice article which you can refer for more details...

Thanks Tim. But my first intention is just to run the robocopy (installed) without going through any other msi installation. However this will kept for my future reference, thanks for sharing.

Hi Santosh, In that case do we have any idea to manually copy that over? I am not sure if that is required as D drive will be removed once we have done the robocopy. And it is under VM environment. Thanks.

Hi Romeo, Let me try to analysis the option: /B switch: Any idea we need to make it under backup mode? :D And I believe W:1 R:1 is to provide the write and read option during the robocopy process? The version of the robocopy in use was XP010. Thanks.

Thanks. In fact, Sys vol info and recycler are not needed and you can safely exclude them. Robocopy has switch "/MIR" which you can use to Mirror a complete directory tree if required.
