I know this is simple but......

Hi All:
I am trying to use robocopy to simply backup My Documents from my PC to an external hard drive (Drive F). I would like to do the backup every other day so ideally, robocopy would copy changed files only.

I created a batch file as follows:
C:\Windows\system32\robocopy "C:\users\MYNAME\Documents" "f:\My Documents" /MIR /E
pause
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The problem is that this batch files deletes everything in f:\My Documents.
As the screen is whizzing by, I can see references to "*EXTRA file" (screen dump attached). Can anyone help me with this simple issue???

Many thanks!
