    Cyberlink and Feedback Hub | Robocopy Mirroring Part II

    I am mostly getting the hang of Robocopy.

    I have hidden Cyberlink and Feedback Hub, and blocked them from showing in the file list.

    But I am not sorting out how to skip the files. I have gleaned a basic understanding of Attributes and I have an idea of how to build the Robocopy command.

    But I clearly have something mixed up or incomplete.

    ERROR : Invalid Parameter #4 : "/XA:ATTRIB+H:CyberLink"

    Here is my command. I am shaky on both on the syntax and the ordering.

    Note: where the big grin object is appearing the code should the code should read /DCOPY colon mark then DA with the space deleted, No idea how it is getting in or how to get rid of it. Sorry.

    ROBOCOPY C:\Users\mikei\Documents I:HP.Files /MIR /XA:ATTRIB+H:CyberLink /X:ATTRIB+H:FeedbackHub /DCOPYA /v /tee /ts /log:"I:\log.HP.temp.txt"

    Can anybody get me on the right path?
    Help me get rid of the grin?

    Thanks for any suggestions and solutions.

    To get rid of the grin, enclose in code tags, the # icon.

    Robocopy: Skipping Folders / Files Quandaries

    Again I am in over my head and very lost.

    Help please.

    Thinking I needed a different structure and command, one for folders,
    /XD dirs [dirs]... eXclude Directories matching given names/paths.

    I now have this and variations for identifying "FeedbackHub"

    ROBOCOPY C:\Users\mikei\Documents I:HP.Files /MIR /DCOPY D: colon ...A /XD:"FeedbackHub" /v /tee /ts /log:"I:\log.HP.temp.txt"

    Which produces this:

    ERROR : Invalid Parameter #5 : "/XD:dirsFeedbackHub"

    Robocopy seems to be moving the leading quotes to the front of the command. Or seeing that part of the command as string?

    Is this is your command?
    ROBOCOPY C:\Users\mikei\Documents I:HP.Files /MIR /DCOPY:DA /XD:"FeedbackHub" /v /tee /ts /log:"I:\log.HP.temp.txt"
    There are a couple of problems with it.

    1. You don't want a colon after /XD and you want to put the full source path to exclude (I'm assuming it is C:\Users\mikei\Documents\FeedbackHub).
    2. The destination path also looks wrong - I'm assuling you have an existing directory I:\HP.Files (note the backslash)
    3. You can also remove /DCOPY:DA as it is the default (not wrong just unnecessary).

    Try something like this :
    ROBOCOPY C:\Users\mikei\Documents I:\HP.Files /MIR  /XD "C:\Users\mikei\Documents\FeedbackHub" /v /tee /ts /log:"I:\log.HP.temp.txt"

    It works for me with slightly different paths defined :

    Incidentally if you want to exclude multiple directories but them in a space delimited list after the /XD .

    Like this :
    ROBOCOPY C:\Users\mikei\Documents I:\HP.Files /MIR  /XD "C:\Users\mikei\Documents\FeedbackHub" "C:\Users\mikei\Documents\Cyberlink" /v /tee /ts /log:"I:\log.HP.temp.txt"

    Thank you this,

    It is E-X-T-R-E-M-E-L-Y helpful

    You have laid out the befuddling syntax very nicely.

    I have studied it but not run it yet: I hope to do that later tonight.

    The linked article looks very informative too. Thanks for it.

    Very close. significant progress, but a new stop point.

    Waiting 30 seconds...

    I am not finding a My Music, hidden or visible

    The next folder is ""

    Any thoughts what is going on?

    I ran the same command again and this time it stalled on My Pictures.

    0 C:\Users\mikei\Documents\MuseScore2\Templates\

    Robocopy uses /COPY:DAT by default, which means to copy data, attributes and timestamp. You could try turning off timestamp copying by explicit setting /COPY:DA if it is having a problem with timestamps.

    What file system are you copying to? NTFS? ExFAT?
