xcopy or robocopy - access denied
We've had a few issues, failing vmware servers, etc and I'm trying to move data from one server to another. I've managed to copy all of the documents, photos, vids, etc onto the other server but the one issue I'm having is that I can't move anything in their profile. I keep getting access denied.
I'm trying to use the following:
(for some reason they stored the documents and profiles separately...)
xcopy e:\Users\staff\Associate\*.* y:\Users\Associate\*.* /v /d /e /c /k /o /y
Anyway, the only way I can think of fixing this issue is to replace the owner permissions to myself, move the data over and then change the permissions back to the account but there must be a simpler way!
If anyone knows a way to "fix" this issue, any help would be appreciated.

Robocopy has a /b which lets it run as backup operator
Might be worth a try?

Do you use Sophos ? It doesn't like robocopy and xcopy .

@free780 No, I don't. I think I have the issue sorted. All I need to do is check if it has worked
