The original answer contained a slightly rambling instruction on how to copy a system folder via Explorer, that ended with the text "Google it". I replaced said text with a call to robocopy that performs the copy without having to do any of the Explorer nonsense; additionally, the robocopy command also copies the attributes and permissions of the directory, to ensure (as a comment on said answer notes) that installers can continue to access it afterwards.
Yet the edit was rejected. Why?
edit: to address the answers:
- I didn't want to make my own answer because (a) my answer would not have significantly differed from the accepted one (b) people generally don't look at answers other than the accepted one anyway, especially when the accepted one has over 200 upvotes. tl;dr adding a new answer would be essentially pointless.
- My edit absolutely does not change the original author's intent. Their intent is to answer the question - my edit still accomplishes that, albeit by changing a single step to use a slightly different (but superior) method.
As such, I would like to suggest that the answer in question be converted to a Community Wiki post.
