Under windows 7 i had a bat file that maps a network drive to a webdav share (win2008r2 server) then kicks off robocopy /mir to sync things up. Under Windows 8 (rtm), same bat file, robocopy flags every file as being an *EXTRA File, deletes them and then downloads it again as a New File.
*EXTRA File 3.7 m file1.mp3
100% New File 3.7 m file1.mp3
If i point robocopy at a local (non webdav) share everything works as expected so i think its something specific to webdev. Windows copy does the same thing, it doesn't tell me the file already exists it just starts copying them / overwriting so i assume this is a windows 'issue'?

I'm having also the same problem!
In addition the subdirectory structure on the webdav share and the files in it are not copied and will be deleted on target drive!
Only files and subdirs on level 1 are first deleted and then copied

Gents I know this isn't a solution, but while it is looked at by the developers you may want to consider using RichCopy. I've had pretty good success with it.

Almost 4 month later and I'm hit by the same issue. Is there any update?
