Q: How Robycopy deals with pointers to directories (short-cuts) RRS feed

  • Question

  • For example, in the statement below

    robocopy %src%  %target% copy:DATSO

    the parameter %src% may be a pointer to a directory. 
    In my case, Robocopy FAILED TO COPY the content the pointer is pointing to.

    In case above %src% is a shortcut to directory created in Windows (8.1) Explorer by “dragging” directory icon (the icon picture & properties verify that it is Wndows “short cut”)

    I’m aware that the parameter  /SL forces Robo to copy the pointer-icon only
