# Robocopy and unicode logs

Has anyone used Robocopy with unicode logs?

I've been trying to get robocopy to output to a unicode text file since I want it to show non-english file names; however, the entire file appears as gibberish when opened in Notepad.

I'm running robocopy using the following command in a batch script:

Code:
``robocopy "\\source\sharename\" "\\destination\sharename" /UNILOG+:copylog.txt /W:2 /R:2 /E /TEE /NP``
I'm using the version that is included with Windows Vista/2008 (I tried on both platforms with the same result).

Any help would be appreciated!

Couldn't you just start cmd with unicode support then just pipe the output of robocopy to copylog.txt?
