  1. What do you want robocopy to do when the destination folder does not exist?

    I prefer an espresso!
    Seriously: The OP needs to put his server admin hat on and think through
    this scenario properly. I can think of several scenarios:
    - Abandon the job and send an alert.
    - Copy the files to the root of the drive.
    - Copy them to an alternative folder.
    - If the /s switch is specified, only deal with the folders that exist in
    the target.
    You can probably dream up a few more ways to skin this particular rabbit!
