Good Morning. I've removed a hard drive from an old computer and I'd like to copy the contents of the entire Windows system partition to a new computer. The problem I'm having is I don't have ownership of all the files so robocopy is giving me access denied (error 5) messages despite using /b (backup mode). I'm trying to run using the /xj parameter to exclude NTFS junctions/reparse points. Obviously I'm using /e for including subdirectories: robocopy I:\ C:\oldpc /e /b /xj It doesn't seem like the commands takeown and icacls have switches to ignore NTFS junction/reparse points like robocopy does - so they get stuck when trying to takeown / icacls the whole I: drive once the commands hit the NTFS junction/reparse points (infinite loops occur). Does anybody have any suggestions? This has got me stumped. Thank you.
