why won't xcopy copy from appdata directory

Specs: Windows 7 32 bit, 3ghz / 3 gig
Trying to do a backup of all *.pst files from several machines.
XCOPYing form the root of the userprofle directory.

Command line:
xcopy %userprofile%\*.pst %bakdrv%:\_Backup\%computername%\%username%\Mail.Files\ /cdisyh

Works perfectly EXCEPT for the *.pst files under the Appdata directory, where the active *.pst files are. Outlook is shut down, and a dir *.pst /s DOES find those active files.

Bang head here....[ ]

Do you get an error message "Error:5 Access Denied" or something ?
