"xcopy/s/y \\server\xxx users c:\Documents and Settings\User\My Documents\Thursday Backup"
the message "Invalid number of parameters" is displayed
Is the problem with my syntax or can anyone through any light on the problem
The name is to long..must keep it at 8 characters with bat files/xcopy commands. Here is a quick on the fly script I wrote to backup a users my documents folder running XP.
xcopy C:\Docume~1\smithr\mydocu~1\*.* u:\%username%\mydocu~1\*.* /E /C /Y /M
All I am doing there is backing up the users My Documents folder to a network share which pulls the users name from the profile via the %username% donation.
