Robocopy

I'm trying to run this command: robocopy /mir /sec "\\pr-share\G$\GDrive" \\pr-na-3210-a\Company_Share" and essentially get random "access is denied waiting 30 seconds, ERROR 5 (0x00000005)". I want to mirror the source ( NTFS) to destination (CIFS) so that I can properly cut this over. What command can I run that will secure permissions as well as not give me this error and others.

Re: Robocopy

Do you see this error a some particular files or entire directory?

- Are you running this with Administrator privileges ?

- If you see this on particular files, check the ownership on them.

Re: Robocopy

- I'm running with Administrative credentials

- some files and folders, and I'm having to take ownership of them in order to proceed. But isn't there any addition to the command I'm using that would just copy them?

Re: Robocopy

use the snapmirror or ndmpcopy that would resolve your problem.

thank you,
