Robo copy also did not work

robocopy L:\ N:\ /copyall

Though tit was a permissions issue, changing that didn't solve anything.

Sorry but I don't know what to do from here. I changed the file permissions to admin/full control. Everything except actual folders are being copied over.

You would need to add /s (include subdirectories with files) or /e (include all subdirectories, including empty ones). The /copyall flag relates to what flags are copied (attributes, acls, etc).

If you want to mirror your internal hard drive to your external (removing any files that don't exist in L:\ but do exist in N:\), you could try the following (/zb is restartable and uses backup mode for access denied issues):
robocopy L:\ N:\ /copyall /mir /zb

If you don't want to delete any files on N:\, just use /e instead of /mir:
robocopy L:\ N:\ /copyall /e /zb

This also does not work. Must be another issue and xcopy should have worked in the first place. Windows 10 settings?

What doesn't work? Which files do you expect that aren't copied, etc?

You _have_ to give a bit more info than you have when we're trying to help, right now it's like extracting teeth to figure out what's wrong.

For example: what file wasn't copied, what are its attributes, what are its ACLs, can you open it, etc...

No folders are copied, only notepad/text files, installers, pdfs, etc. I already set permissions for full control.

Anyways I just selected everything manually and dragged it over. However I usually run into issues this way, or more space it utilized on the destination drive for no reason.. Xcopy is usually more efficient in that sense. I'll let you know how it pans out
