I need to copy folderA into folderB via the command line:
c:\temp \folderA \folderB
c:\temp \folderA \folderB\folderA
That is, exactly the same as if you copied folderA using windows explorer and pasted it into folderB.
This does not work:
xcopy /e folder1 folder2\
as you end up with the contents of folderA in folderB and not folderA itself.
move does exactly what I want except that it moves instead of copy :)
How do you copy a folder and include the folder itself as the base folder for the copy? I shouldn't have to use mkdir to create the target folder. (but that gets the job done nastily)
Please dont direct me to this as that does not do the above.
Thanks to the answers below using robocopy I found a solution using xcopy that doesnt prompt either:
xcopy /e /i folderA folderB\folderA
/i option to avoid being asked whether the target is a directory or a file.
