Robocopy - Transfer files where the path has spaces?
Morning, First off sorry if this is in the wrong place.
I am looking for a little bit of help - I am trying to transfer some files from a location on one server to a location on another server using Robocopy. However the path and destination both have spaces in them for example of the code below
Robocopy \\servername\driveletter\folder name with spaces \\Newservername\driverletter\exact foldername with spaces\placetocopyfiles /copyall /e /r:3 w:1
When i run it i get an error saying that the destination contains an invalid perameter and surrounds the destinations with " " marks.
Tried putting " " marks all over the show and nothing seems to work. Will robocopy handle what i want it to do and if so how?

This is what I use,
Your code should read,
robocopy "\\servername\directory name" "\\goingto\directory name" /e /sec /copyall /v /eta /tee /item
Robocopy "\\servername\driveletter\folder name with spaces" "\\Newservername\driverletter\exact foldername with spaces\placetocopyfiles" /copyall /e /r:3 w:1

Cheers for reply Chris, I think thats nailed it! I put " before the \\servername and after the directory name as well as removing the \ at the end! Looks like it running through!
