Try this if those are the switches you want to use. Create a folder on your D Drive and name it backup (or whatever you want)

Robocopy G:\appapcddrive D:\backup \e \copyall \Dcopy:T /log:backup_log.txt

This will also make a log of what was done. If anything goes wrong you can see where it happened.

If it works, you can also copy/paste this into notepad and name it whatever you want with a .bat extension and just click that and it will run by itself. The echo is if you want to watch what it does in a command window. If you don't make it echo off.

Robocopy G:\appapcddrive D:\backup \e \copyall \Dcopy:T /log:backup_log.txt

I have a menu that I use at work for testing and accessing other systems.
I input the systems NAME or IP and I have a list of tools I can run.
One item in my TOOLS MENU is ROBOCOPY it is listed below here.

Can I add a ETA or better yet a progress bar?

=====MY SCRIPT -

set /P source=Enter Source Folder^>
set /P target=Enter \Install\Target Folder Name^>
robocopy "%source%" "\\%host%\c$\Install\%target%" /mir /ETA /r:1 /w:1

Thank you all for all your help
