Robocopy Fails on Windows Cluster Shared Volumes (CSV)

Using Windows 7 client, or Windows server 2012 r2 Hyper-V console on a cluster node, robocopy fails to copy files from a CSV to a client share.

Either using Windows Explorer or XCopy works, however XCopy failed on files over 2GB... So lets go old school for the VXD copy.

No fix, sorry, just a problem.
