How to Robocopy File Shares With Spaces
You will see the following error if you try to use robocopy to transfer data to or from a network share with spaces in it unless you use the correct syntax:
ERROR 67 (0x00000043) Getting File System Type of Source \\servername\share name" e:\data \s \e \copy:dats
The network name cannot be found.
ERROR : No Destination Directory Specified.
To resolve the error, you must use the correct robocopy syntax for shares with spaces. This is the correct syntax for my example:
robocopy /"\server01\boe applications\/" e:\data \s \e \copy:dats
Just in case you were wondering what the switches in this command do, here is a description:
robocopy source destination
/s & /e - Copy subdirectories
/copy:dats - Copies the following file properties: Data, Attributes, Time Stamps, and NTFS ACL
