    Robocopy Help

    How do i use Robocopy (or Robocopy GUI) to:

    Move all user's data to a new folder within their areas?

    that is

    move

    D:\Pupils\Year xx\%users_name_here%\*.*

    to

    D:\Pupils\Year xx\%users_name_here%\Documents\*.*

    Doing this cos of Vista and its habit of naming their %username% folder to "Documents"

    Hope this makes some sense!!
