Windows 7: Installed new SSD - Having Robocopy failures.

Installed new SSD - Having Robocopy failures.

Hi,
So I've just got myself a Crucial M4 256GB and want to move my existing Win 7 x64 installation off my HDD and on to my SSD.
I've done all the preliminaries in Diskpart and have the drive marked as active. The last step is to copy all the files across (rather than use cloning software) with Robocopy.

However, even in an elevated command prompt I'm getting 'Access is denied' errors on the important stuff.

The command I am using is:

Robocopy e:\ h:\ /e /copyall /dcopy:t /r:0

(e and h being what Vista has assigned each drive when trying it in that)

also tried the /sec switch with no joy.

I've tried this using the Windows 7 install DVD and within Windows Vista x86 (the HDD is a dual boot with 2 partitions; one containing 7 x64 and the other Vista x86).

Any help on this one, please?

I've added the /b switch in to the command line which seems to now allow copying of files previously denied. Shall see if this has done the trick once the copy completes.

Cheers. But adding the /b switch did the job for me.
