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.
Do not regret growing older. It is a privilege denied to many.

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).
