Robocopy "Skipped" Directories but they weren't

Hi,

Win 8.1 64Bit Pro

I'm using RoboCopy to copy files to a different HDD's. (Once/If the copy has successfully completed, I delete the source files.)

Anyway, the RC cmd is:

RoboCopy "D:\Documentaries" "F:\Documentaries" /E /COPY:DAT /DCOPY:T /Z /MT:4 /R:1 /W:10 /LOG:"C:\RoboCpy\RoboCpy_Log.txt" /FP /TEE /X /V /ETA

In this instance, the target "F:\Documentaries" did NOT exist (in fact, the HDD was completely empty).

RC worked just fine. After it finished the source & target were identical.

I noticed the very 1st thing that RC did, was to allocate ALL of the first level directories, then copy the files in those directories, then the 2nd level & so on.

At the end the log has:

Total Copied Skipped Mismatch FAILED Extras
Dirs : 262 262 262 0 0 0
Files : 996 996 0 0 0 0
Bytes : 625.253 g 625.253 g 0 0 0 0
Times : 11:01:37 1:45:56 0:00:00 0:26:31

What I don't understand .... why is RC reporting that it "skipped" directories? Yet at the same time, RC "copied" 262 directories?

Am I missing something, perhaps I need to change the RC cmd someway?

TIA
BazzaG...
