Robocopy - Switch Please Help

Hi All,

I'm transferring files to a new file server and was looking at using Robocopy.

The scenario is I'm moving files from server1 to server2.

Server1 has a deploy folder with several other folders within it. I'm looking to copy a certain folder to Server2 rather than the contents of the entire deploy folder.

The path to the folder on Server1 I am looking to copy is \\server1\deploy\microsoft

The path on Server2 where I am looking to copy is \\server2\deploy

The robocopy command:
robocopy \\server1\deploy\microsoft \\server2\deploy /S /E /SEC will copy the file(s) contained within the microsoft folder (on server1) to \\server2\deploy but it will not copy the actual microsoft folder across.

Am I missing a switch in the robocopy command?

Just to summarise

Source: \\server1\deploy\microsoft
Destination: \\server2\deploy

Result: files within the microsoft directory are copied over but not the folder itself.

Any help much appreciated.

Here are the syntax and examples here

Never used robocopy, so I'm not too much help here. Ever looked at taracopy. Got a GUI and everything, error handling, and hashes.
