    You see the Robocopy process as it runs and you get a record of the process that matches what you see.
    I don't watch my RoboCopy scripts in action.

    I only bother looking at my logs if there is something worth looking at.

    I check the Exit code from any individual RoboCopy command line within my script and
    1 Repeat the command [I give it six tries in some cases***] then
    2 Flag up any remaining Exit code greater than 3 by renaming the log file * - Failures.Log then
    3 Bring up a dialog box at the end of the end of the script that tells me to look at the log names because a failure has ocurred.

    Robocopy Exit Codes - SS64

    *** I also halve the /MT value at each repeat. I start off at /MT:32 so the second try would be /MT:16, the third try would be /MT:8 and so on down to /MT:1.

    So you have indeed proved that, for all practicable purposes, the /L switch is worse than useless.

    Well done.

    I just found a workaround—creating a shortcut whose target is
    C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe /C Robocopy "E:" "F:\# Reserved" /L /Ts /Mir /XF "desktop.ini" "Thumbs.db" & Pause
    The shortcut gives correct results.
