Script links and mounts Production and DR Filespaces as separate instances on the same machine, performs a Robocopy mirror of the complete directory tree to the DR Filespace.

Ensures only 1 instance is running, therefore can be scheduled as a task to complete without overlap. Waits on all uploads to complete before synchronizing metadata, file data and unlinking. 

update <prod.filespace> and <dr.filespace> names, <rootpassword> with your individual Filespace variables and 'root' user passwords.
