  • Hi,

    Thanks for the reply, executing robocopy file copied from Windows 2008 R2 64 bit server to Windows 2008 64 bit server gives the warning "Robocopy.exe not a valid Win32 application". It seems we cannot use new version file in older versions of windows even if its 64 bit Server. Any suggestions?
