    The specified network name is no longer available!

    Error 64 <0x00000040> copying file "filename" The specified network name is no longer available

    This is the error message I get when trying to run a simple robocopy command to backup my user home areas to a remote server.

    i'm using robocopy with switch /MIR

    'tho when it runs it lists the options as: /S /E /COPYAT /PURGE /MIRROR

    Strange cos I thought /E and /S did different things - no files in subdirectories and files in subdirectories.

    This has run fine for a couple of weeks. I've checked no-one has the files open and permissions on the source are fine. Only certain files are causing the error - or the link is up and down like a yoyo - seems to halt on different files each time.

    help anyone?

    Re: The specified network name is no longer available!

    The 2 posts with that error on google groups both mention large files and suggest some sort of network timeout.

    Possible ideas:

    Are you running it at the same PC?
    Is there anything else affecting the speed of your network?
    Are there any multi-gigabyte files knocking about in there?

    Yes - i'm running it from the same server
    No - don't think so - not at this time! - but seems like this is the chief suspect
    No - the files aren't big
