I was wondering if someone knows what is going on...
I am using an xcopy command to back up some files from two local drives, C: and D: to folders on a mapped network drive O:
The problem I am having is that the data copied across from drive C: copies fine, but the data copied from drive D: to a specific folder on drive O: causes that folder on drive O: to disappear. I think it is still there as when i try to create another folder on drive O: of the same name it comes up with an error telling me there is already a folder of that name.
The commands i am using in the batch file are as follows:
xcopy /s /e /q /y /v C:\ICPCHEM\1\METHODS "O:Archive\Method Files"
xcopy /s /e /q /y /v C:\ICPCHEM\1\SEQUENCE "O:Archive\Sequence Files"
xcopy /s /e /q /y /v D:\ "O:Archive\Data Files"
As explained above the first two backups (Of the "Methods" and "Sequence" folders) backup fine to the specified folders in the O: drive.
The batch file seems to copy the folders on D: drive to the "Data Files" folder on the O: drive, but after the batch file has run when i explore to O: drive the "Data Files" folder seems to have disappeared.
Hope that makes some kind of sense. Anyone got any idea whats going on?
