robocopy

    Question

  • I'm trying to use robocopy to copy files and subdirectories from a zip drive to a hard drive and include the original modification dates using the /copyall attribute. By just copying it within Windows 7 professional every subdirectory shows up with a current modification date. So when using /copyall I keep getting the error message "you do not have the manage auditing user right". Don't know what that means - right as in correct, or right as in permission. Either way, is there some way to do this?

  • Robocopy isn't as good as XCOPY,already installed in Win 7....To transfer the whole OS from drive to drive,or

    to copy some files/folders,the text in run would be:  XCOPY C:\*.* D:\ /c/h/e/k/r   This being C: the OS,& D:

    the newly formatted HD.But,for other drives to other drives,simply edit C:  &  D: 

    For all cmds,try TechNet library: 491035  or XCOPY in cmd,typing XCOPY also gets the list...

  • Hi,

    You can try S.Sengupta’s suggestions firstly and make sure that you have the permission to the target drive. By handling on the permission issue, log on with administrator and add the users who you logged in to the group:

    Run gpedit.msc

    Computer Configuration > Windows Settings > Security Settings > Local Policies > User Rights >Manage auditing and security log

    You can also output the log and find why the files are failed to transfer using /v :
