Copying the package with ROBOCOPY

Copying the package to another folder with robocopy has an issue. Robocopy uses exit codes as success/error codes. CI servers look at the exit code of a command to determine success or failure. Robocopy breaks this model. Luckliy the sql team posted a code snippet to get around this issue.

rem http://weblogs.sqlteam.com/robv/archive/2010/02/17/61106.aspx
robocopy %*
rem suppress successful robocopy exit statuses, only report genuine errors (bitmask 16 and 8 settings)
set/A errlev="%ERRORLEVEL% & 24"
rem exit batch file with errorlevel so SQL job can succeed or fail appropriately
exit/B %errlev%
