    Robocopy question

    Is there a way to move the contents of a folder without deleting the folder?

    e.g. I want to move the contents of d:\Folder1\ to d:\Folder2 but leave Folder1 in place (and more importantly with the sceurity intact).


    It's has just occured to me as I type that I could script the re-creation and security setting on Folder1 but it compicates what I am trying to do and I was wondering if there was a way to stop robocopy deleting the root of the files I am moving.

    I think the /Mirror switch does that.

    EDIT: Sorry misread your post, not sure.
