Hey all,

My wife recently got a MacBookPro and I am trying to incorporate it into my/our current backup scenario. My main rig and our HTPC/backup server both run Win 7 Professional.

I have written a quick bat file with the various robocopy commands needed to copy all new files from specific shared folders Below is an excerpt:

Code:
robocopy "\\\\macbookpro-24f9\\business" o:\\carolyndata\\Macbackup\\business /e /xc /xx /xo /tee /log+:c:\\users\\dennis\\desktop\\log.txt
The issue is that this this will not copy anything in the top directory from the Mac but any folders and the files in them will copy fine. Also, The error message I get is:

Quote:
New File 394242010 Private Lessons Records.xls
2011/02/01 10:06:11 ERROR 2 (0x00000002) Accessing Destination Directory \\\\macbookpro-24f9\\business\\
The system cannot find the file specified.
The file is identified as new and the file name is recognized, then it says cannot access and file does not exist..... uh, you just said it did? In other words, the .xls file in the error above is located in the directory "Business" in share "MacBook....." The above robocopy command run on my PC will not copy that file to o:\\..etc.. But if I move that xls file to a new folder, the new folder is created and the file in it is copied.
I can physically read and move that file from the Mac to my PC, using my PC, without issue.

The various shared folders on the Mac where shared by going to sharing in System Preferences, adding them to file sharing, and setting the advanced options to use SMB for Windows sharing.

Any help is appreciated!
