Hi,

What does this error message mean for Robocopy batch job run?


ERROR: You do not have the Backup and Restore Files user rights.
***** You need these to perform Backup copies (/B or /ZB).

   Simple Usage :: ROBOCOPY source destination /MIR

         source :: Source Directory (drive:\path or \\server\share\path).
    destination :: Destination Dir  (drive:\path or \\server\share\path).
           /MIR :: Mirror a complete directory tree.

For more usage information run ROBOCOPY /? or read Robocopy.Doc.

NOTE: Read "True Replication" in Robocopy.Doc prior to first use of /MIR !
**** /MIR can DELETE files as well as copy them !

    Hi,
    Please tell me the OS of your server.
    According to the error information, you need to log onto an Administrator account and run cmd (choose Run as Administrator).
    I found a similar thread and I hope it could help at your side:

    Thanks for your time!
    Best Regards,
