New XCOPY fundimentally flawed?
It appears that entire sub-folders are skipped if one bad file is found in a folder. It doesn't just skip the bad file, but writes off the entire folder (if not already copied before error). Something is rotten...

New Probably not xcopy, but the Windows 'attitude' top copying.
You've undoubtedly already encountered it whilst using Explorer to copy files. One error and *bam!* everything stops.

That said, the [link|http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xcopy|Wikipedia page on XCopy] suggests using [link|http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robocopy|Robocopy]. It's in the Windows 2003 Resource Kit, downloadable [link|http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=9d467a69-57ff-4ae7-96ee-b18c4790cffd&displaylang=en|here].

Is it enough to love
Is it enough to breathe
Somebody rip my heart out
And leave me here to bleed
 
Is it enough to die
Somebody save my life
I'd rather be Anything but Ordinary
Please
