How shall I put this...

It's like: you can tell robocopy: "move the contents of this map to that map".

But you can't say: "move that map to that map, no matter the contents"(to be content of that map)

Or can you?

There is a GUI for Robocopy that makes it much easier to use outside the command line called RichCopy.

Robocopy by default should copy all contents, no matter what they are. If you mean recursively into all subdirectories, use /E:

robocopy C:\dir D:\backupdir /E

You can find a complete list of all available switches here.

I believe what the original poster was referring to was the fact that RoboCopy does not copy the root folder / source folder, but rather only its contents.

More information can be found here: Robocopy does not copy the root folder and its time stamp
