Need Help writing a Script to use Robocopy

Mike Carter 246 Reputation points

I have been trying to google how to do this and I am having trouble finding a good example that helps me learn how to do this.

I need a Script that will run a Robocopy command on a list of about 530 users. The RoboCopy command I need to run is

Robocopy "D:\homedrive\$username\Chrome" "D:\Chrome\$username" /e

the user names I need to run this against will be in a CSV file in a single column "username"

can get some help from the Script writers out there to make this work?

the Script will be ran on the server the files are being moved on.

Thank you.

    Try this:

    Import-Csv X:\SomeDirectory\SomeFileName.csv |
            $cmdArgs = "D:\homedrive\$($_.username)\Chrome", "D:\Chrome\$($_.username)", "/e"
            Robocopy $cmdArgs
