I'm trying to write a batch command (Windows 10) that will copy an ArcGIS geodatabase to a new folder. I know this may seem like bad practice but it is part of a much larger project creation process which also includes non-GIS elements.
I can get batch files to copy normal folders and files using the
copy [origin] [destination]
command but the .gdb suffix of the geodatabase appears to break this.
If I try to copy the folder and include the .gdb suffix (i.e. as the folder appears in windows explorer) it creates a single file (of .gdb extension) rather than a folder with geodatabase elements inside.
