I have about 3GB of files/folders (47k files, 15k folders) on a server and am trying to copy it to another in the same domain via LAN. Every time I finish making a copy, the number of files being reported on the server being copied to is more than what exists in the original server.
I used Windows copy (using mouse) the first two times. I then used robocopy (first with the
/E parameter and then with
/E /PURGE). I have 47,619 files/15,335 folders on the original server. I have 47,640 files/15,335 folders on the copied server. The two times I ran robocopy with the said parameters did not change the number of files.
Does anyone what could be going wrong?
- Both servers are Win Server SP1 Standard Ed.
- The server where the files are being copied to has 638 MB free in C: but I am copying everything to D: which has enough space.
- I am running the command sitting on the server where the files are being copied to.
