unbelievable. I just spent 10 mintue typing a reply into the box, go to send, and it says it
has logged me out.............mail totally lost. Great...........!
I'll start again, this time cutting and pasting from a notepad file.
............."Nobody in the newsgroup knows what you are talking about as you didn't quote
what you were replying to"..............if it is that difficult to use the web site no
wonder very few people use it. I saw the message, I pressed reply.
Anyway, on to the problem:
I am actually using XP, but I understand from searches on the Web that all this is also a
VISTA problem. This problem definitely exists:
Robocopy and Hidden Files : Robocopy
Robocopy creates hidden directorys in win xp
Destination Folder hidden/invisible after using xcopy or robocopy - Neowin Forums
The script I am using is:
robocopy F: "M:\290_MOB1_BU_D_Media" *.* /MIR /X /FP /V /XD "_RESTORE" "System Volume Information" /R:1 /W:1 /TEE
If the destination drive is empty and robocopy has to create the folder, then the folder is not only created as a hidden folder, but created as a system folder, so th hidden attribute cannot be undone.
I get around this at the moment by putting the following script before the robo script:
Everything then works ok and the folder is not hidden.
If the folder already exist, the command effictively gets ignored.
This has to be a bug.
If not AT THE VERY LEAST the documentation should explain why this behaviour is so.
