    Hello Fellow 7 users,

    I have just switched OS to Windows 7, and i am impressed so far.

    I want to backup my data on an external harddrive. I would like to use the function ROBOCOPY in the command windows because then i don't have to third party program running all the time. But the copying stops at a folder that it cannot access. The folder is "c:\Users\"MyUser"\Documents\My Music", but the folder doesn't exist in the directory. I have checked the folder with explorer and commando prompt, but its not there.

    I have made a screenshot of the failure:

    I am using the following command:

    REM Starting Syncronizing with external harddrive
    cd %0\..\
    robocopy "C:\Users\Halberg\Documents" "Backup\Documents" /MIR /ETA

    I hope you can help me with this problem.

    It got solved on an other forum by using this command:

    REM Starting Syncronizing with external harddrive
    cd %0\..\
    robocopy "C:\Users\Halberg\Documents" "Backup\Documents" /MIR /ETA /XJD

    Hopefully it can help someone else later on!
