Hi All,

Quick question regarding robocopy. I am not that great in using it but I did manage to figure out that how to do basic copying and mirroring. My main issue is copying over files that have security permissions.

At this point, I have this:

Code:
robocopy c:\foldername e:\foldername /copyall /mir
What would I add and does it matter where I place the syntax for it to work?

Help appreciated.

EDIT: Figured out the security part. How would I get the script to still copy everything in the folder if its being used by someone else or they forgot to close it?

Thanks.

I am not looking to make a shadow copy but I did end up making the changes to the script.

Thanks anyways I guess.

You asked how to copy a file if it is in use. Robocopy cannot do that by itself.
