Comments column missing in Explorer after Robocopy operation.

2 posts in this topic

I used Robocopy to copy an entire partition, everything worked as usual but the comments columns in Windows Explorer are all blank. I thought that comments, album, artist, etc. are part of NTFS file attributes that Robocopy will copy with /COPYALL option.

How do I copy comments along with the files?

Was that the complete RoboCopy command you used?

AFAICT (having "backed up" then "restored" a User set of files/folders, specifically, Music, Pictures, Photos, Videos folders "interactively" by giving responses) using "Copy" instead, it appears that the DESKTOP.INI comes into play and the correct one(s) were overlaid. I had observed this and "kept" the larger of the two (AFAIKR) which worked... something I BELIEVE to do with Junctions...
