    another robocopy inquiry >.<

    anyone tell me why this isnt working?

    robocopy "C:\Users\klepp\AppData\Local\Plex Media Server" "U:\Backups\Plex Media Server\AppData\Local" /e /xo /purge /xd "System Volume Information" "$RECYCLE.BIN" "Recovery"

    trying to take my plex media server folder that has all my metadata etc and back it up to my backups folder which I have structured as backups/plex media server/appdata/local(want /Plex Media Server to come next) This way I know where it goes when/if i have to replace it which I imagine may be part of the issue with robocopy working (the folder structured the way I have it)?

    I think you need to add the complete path for the /XD switch like this:
    /XD "c:\users\klepp\appdata\System Volume Information" and whatever the complete path is to the rest of the folders. I hope this makes sense to you...
