xcopy'ing to an SD card

2 posts in this topic

Hi everyone,

I have developed a script to create a bootable USB-hosted SDHC to allow installation of both XP 32-bit and XP 64-bit on machines that I have at various locations (RMPartUSB and WinNTSetup2_x86 developers, thank you!).

However, there was one thing that really caused a nuisance, and that was the final xcopy to the SDHC.

I found that my usual xcopy /c /h /e /q /k /r /o /y didn't work, xcopy /h /e did.

I hope this helps anyone else who gets stuck with xcopy switches.

The "standard" (mine) is however:

/i /s /e /r /v /k /f /c /h

Most probably the issue you had was due to the missing /h switch, that will leave behing any "hidden" file :w00t: , and the /o may also cause issues :unsure: (if the target is NTFS).
