XCOPY /D switch problem

By Loketar ·
Hi, I have three workstations using xcopy via batch file as follows: xcopy "M:\*.*" \Backup2004 /d /s
The /d switch works fine on two of the three machines however on the third machine, unless the user explicity enters the date following the /d switch, the entire source contents are copy not just newer contents. Any ideas??? The server and workstation time and date are synched. All three W/S's are from the same win2k image. Thanks in advance.

This is probably on the wrong track but I have to ask: Is the time zone set the same on all three workstations?

As well, are you using NTFS, and what are the user permissions to both folders (from and too)?
