Robocopy doesn't copy mp3 files

    Question

  • Hi. I have 2 folders with .mp3 files in it.

    Folder 1 contains .mp3 files.
    Folder 2 contains only a few of those files that are in Folder 1.

    But the files in Folder 2 are damaged.

    I want to copy files again from Folder 1 to Folder 2 and ignore files that exists in Folder 1 but not in Folder 2 and replace files in Folder 2 with files from Folder 1

    This is the command I used.

    robocopy "G:\music\(2009) Billboard Top 100 of 2009" "F:\Fav (Album wise)\==(2009) Billboard Top 100 of 2009" /XL

    But this is the result. Nothing get copied.

    But this methods works fine when I tested with notepad files. Here is the result of testing with .txt files.

    robocopy "F:\folder 1" "F:\folder 2" /XL

    Why is that this doesn't work with .mp3 files but works with .txt files ?
