Robocopy results in portable drive being inaccessible and crashing workstations RRS feed

  • Question


    We recently encountered a problem while using robocopy to copy files from an iomega drive to a network drive.  We started receiving errors (possibly due to network latency) and eventually the drive became inaccessible, and connecting to any workstation causes the workstation to hang.


    We are using version 1.96 of the software and were using the following options /F /E / Z r:1


    At this point the drive remains inaccessible and whenever we connect it to a workstation it causes the workstation to crash.  We are looking for a way to correct the situation.


    Have you seen this situation occur before, and are there any options for recovering the drive?  Thanks!
