My laptop isn’t booting, so I’m running a Windows ISO off a DVD and attempting to backup some files to an external hard drive plugged into the USB via Command Prompt.
With command prompt I can enter folders and copy the individual files within them to my hard drive using the robocopy command. (E.g ‘C:\Users\Downloads robocopy E:).
However I want to copy an entire directory such as ‘C:\Program Files (x86)’ including all of the (unzipped) sub folders etc.
I’ve tried using xcopy like this: ‘C\program files (x86)\ E:\ /s /e /h /i /c /y’ & like this: ‘C:\program files (x86)\ E:\’.
But each time command prompt returns the message ‘Invalid number of parameters’.
Any idea on how I could copy these directories?
All help would be much appreciated! Thank you!
