I am trying to copy some folders over using XCOPY inside something called opendos.

When I use:

xcopy d:\documeČ1\user\ r:\

It copies all the files inside that user to the r:\ drive, however not any of the subfolders or files inside the subfolders

I've tried adding /S to the end of this but it doesn't change anything.

Any idea on how to copy the subfolders and files inside subfolders over?

It seems to be ignoring the switch at the end:
xcopy d:\documeČ1\user r:\ /s
Just copies the files in user directory and not the subfolders or files in subfolders

Just you need to use /E

the right command line should be

xcopy [source path] [target path] /E

also please do not forget to use /H for hidden & system files, If there is something wrong copy stops, if you do not want to stop for any error please use /C;

For more information "CMD>help xcopy"
Everything will be better...!
