    I want to keep local folder in sync with one on my smartphone's internal memory folder using robocopy. In Windows Explorer the path to destination folder looks like this:
    Code:
    Computer\OnePlus One\Internal memory\Music
    
    But that did not work with robocopy resulting in creating
    Code:
    path_to_robocopy_sync_batch_file\Computer\OnePlus One\Internal memory\Music
    
    Can this be done with this method?

    You may need to include your path names in "" quotes "Computer\OnePlus One\Internal memory\Music" because you have spaces.

    Under Windows, MTP devices aren't exposed in the regular filesystem, so you can't access them via command prompt or any command line tool.

    Ok, could it be done with the help of any other non-command line tool called from the command prompt? Any ideas which one?
