I want to copy a logical drive totally to a ext hard disk and i used this formula, which came with error .
i miss something , would you please correct it
robocopy d:\ g:\appacomputer /E/copyall/dcopy:T
where my d:\ is a logical drive and g:\appacomputer is the destination folder (ext.hdd.disk).
what is the mistake in the formula, it gives error such as destination not specified etc..
Somewhere in some forum, i read it and made some slash changes, which immediately copied , but only the folders and sub folders without the files .
Immediate response would be helpful as, i want to take a backup of the drive , as i am facing data loss. pl
N.B: i want the date of folders and files of original date as at d: drive
You need spaces between /E/copyall/dcopy:T, like this:

D:\ G:\appacomputer /E /COPYALL /DCOPY:T
