    I've written a simple batch file to copy all of My Documents files and subdirectories to a laptop by newtworking and mapping it's C: drive. I'm using XCOPY as follows:

    xcopy "c:\My Documents" "m:\Copied Documents" /A/E/I/R/K/Y/H/U/S

    When I check the properties of the source My Documents versus what's copied it is missing about 50 files and a few subdirectories, (not all).

    What am I doing wrong?
