Xcopy creates ~
Just trying to copy pupil drives from one server to another using xcopy and when it creates the folders on the new one it creates a ~ after the first 6 characters. EG armstr~1.

Which parameters are you using with xcopy? It shouldn't do this unless you've got a /N in there somewhere.
If you haven't, then I'm not sure... might be worth trying robocopy or XXCOPY, A Versatile File Management Utility --- Boldly Extended Xcopy instead, maybe?

Are you using xcopy with the /N switch? This will force 8.3 filenames.
Robocopy is far better in every respect.
