    Looking at the (redacted) screenshots and just considering the file sizes, and since the 2nd shows more files, I will assume is the source, I note:
    2nd shows 2x196kb files, 2x355kb files
    1st shows 2x355kb files, 1x196kb file.

    That suggests the missing file is 196kb - yet the one you mention as a problem xxxxxx~4.pdf is 355kb.

    I find that confusing..you can see the filenames, so perhaps you can understand more.

    Another strange thing. If I copy the folder with the pdf files to internal disk - it works without question to replace the ~4.pdf. I can then also see the file.

    If I copy the folder with the files directly to a external disk or a usb drive I got the question to replace the file and I can't see the file after copy. Just tested on a new win10 laptop. I'll will go for a try with Live Ubuntu just now.

    So Robocopy is wrong then? Are you sure the destination is correct? Try booting into Linux and see if you can see the files. Most likely not, but just to make sure it is not some Windows weird behavior...


    Can't see in Live Ubuntu either.

    Ah, yes, reading the whole thread now ...

    I find that Robocopy COPY/MOV operation can result in some files being hidden after the process is complete (Why? I dinna ken ....). It seems to happen a lot if I interupt the process, and/or go into the source/destination folders to check how many files left/copied/moved during the process.

    Hence my Robocopy command lines always now include /a-:rsh​ which resets the attributes to unhide/unsystem/unread-only all copied/moved files.

    Ok. Will that affect date and time stamp or any other usefull data?

    It's the one that is 355kb that is "missing".

    Not as far as I've experienced.

    Might've missed any explanation above, but is it missing or is it just hidden?

    Yes it's there but it's hidden somehow.

    Now I discovered another thing. It worked open the file with the destination path + filename from Start > Search.
