Win 7 Script for Robocopy not working on windows 10

By mapper3d ·
I have a script running robocopy to copy about 1.5 tb of data from one machine to another. Works fine windows 7 machine. But on Windows 10 it doesnt run.
Its something like this (im at home right now & dont have the script with me)
robocopy "\\NetworkMachineSource1\dir\another_dir\ C:\program files\dir\another_dir\ /mir /fx "

Anyways, from my research today im thinking there is a problem with permissions with computer source and destination with the /mir command.

I tried it with /MIR /SEC and /SECFIX

Anyone encounter this yet? Would really appreciate a response if you can assist me or even point me to the right direction.

I think either go back to Windows 7 or ask a good programmer to write a new script for widows 10.

Hi ,
You can try installing in compatibility mode and check if this helps:

Press the ‘Windows + W’ key on the keyboard.
Type compatibility in the search box and then press enter.
Click “Run programs made for previous versions of Windows” option from the list appeared in the left side.
Select the drivers and install.
Hope this information was helpful and do let us know if you need further assistance. We will be glad to assist.
...Or you can use an alternative tool gs rich copy 360 enterprise which works great in all latest windows.
