Hi everyone,

Using the Robocopy feature of batch/command prompt, I have run into a probelm. I'm trying to copying a folder from one location on my computer to a network drive routinely. But it always gets hung up on one certain file. How do I tell it to keep going and skip over the bad file?

It might depend on the reason the file was hanging the process. Without knowing what that is I suggest you look at some switches that allow for an IF ¦ THEN condition to work around the problem file.

add that switch, it will retry once and move on to the next file
