robocopy error RRS feed

  • Question

  • I use the robocopy command all the time and it works perfectly, but for some reason I'm running into an issue. I'm trying to copy the content of one network share to another. I've never had an issue before doing so.

    I run the command like this: "robocopy n: x:\Misc /e /copy:dat /xo /zb /w:2 /r:2

    Error message, "Error 4390 (0x00001126) Accessing Destination Directory x:\Misc The file or Directory is not a reparse point."

    I did open CMD as an administrator prior to running command.

    What is a reparse point and why does Microsoft need a reparse point for this particular copy job to copy these folders and files?

    I noticed while searching for an answer I ran into this post:

    https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/ie/en-US/5cd00366-79f0-4459-b38c-f23fed453624/robocopy-error-4390?forum=winserverfiles

    This guy had the same issue but nothing was resolved.

    If I use a 3rd party software like Teracopy I can copy just fine but not with robocopy.

  • Hi,

    From the error, it is possible that the file you copied contain a junction points.

    Please run the command robocopy n: x:\Misc /e /copy:dat /xo /zb /w:2 /r:2 /xj /log:<logfilename>

    To import the log file which shows specific files you copied. You can upload the txt file to a network drive and share the link here. In  this way, we can help to analyze the log.

    Seems that there are several files that has the same issue.

  • Never got it to work.

    I failed to mention I am copying data from an Apple share using Windows onto a Qnap (NAS). Three different file types...

    It's just not a normal copy job....

  • Hi,

    What if you try  \\ip\sorce folder \\ip\Destination folder /e /copy:dat /xo /zb /w:2 /r:2 /xj

    In addition, make sure that the three things:NAS,windows,Apple use the same version of SMB protocol.

    How to enable SMB on windows, remember to back up your registry:

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-sg/help/2696547/how-to-detect-enable-and-disable-smbv1-smbv2-and-smbv3-in-windows-and

    About NAS settings, you can open console to check the configurations.
