I'm trying to find a cheaper reliable cloud backup service for a small business. I decided to go with Google Drive. The main problem I'm running into is that I can't seem to write a batch file that will automatically copy and paste the original backup folder located on the server to the Google Drive folder (which would then sync itself into the cloud). I'm trying to do this using the robocopy command. With it I can copy to and from any other folders except to the Google Drive folder. When I pull up the properties of the Google Drive folder I notice that the Read only attribute is checked, and whenever I change it it just defaults back to checked. Any suggestions on how to fix this or an alternative to Google Drive that this would work with? Thanks.

Sorry, I guess the properties didn't matter. I completely found my mistake was just a slightly embarrassing typo that I made all three times I tired erasing it and rewriting it, and then didn't know how to delete the whole forum post. Always remember when writing a command/batch file that if a folder has a space in it to put quotation marks around it! :happy:
