comment “Operating system error 1394” - How can I prevent it?
@syneticon-dj : 50+ SQL instances and several hundred databases and in the middle of the night? I need my beauty sleep mate! It seems to be a temporary glitch thing, and my script will just try again in 10 minutes or so. But I do get error message emails for every fail and, well, I shouldn't be getting these errors!

@syneticon-dj : Thanks, I did see that! My 'huntch' is that it's to do with Active Directory authentication tickets that are being rejected - maybe because of a time sync issue between the servers. But this is just a guess and I'd like something to back that up...

comment Robocopy: How to move the content of a directory but KEEP the directory
@Chris. A little harsh methinks. The answer was valid apart from the "parent directory" requirement, and I did ask for clarification which that was only availanble after I posted the answer. Using my answer you could use the /XD or /XA parameter.
