I'm a newbie around here, so I'm not sure, are you getting the right single/double quotes? It seems you are trying to preserve double quotes around the generated source/destination paths for the command line. I'm not on a windows box at the moment so I can't try it, but if you run the following, does the command line come up as desired?

$var1 = "FileOne.tmp" ; set however it comes in your script
$var2 = "FileTwo.tmp"

$CmdLine = 'robocopy "' & @HomeDrive & '\Drivers"' & '\Test"' & ' "' & $var1 & ":\" & "\EUB\" & $var2 & " backup" & '\Desktop" /S /E /R:0 /W:0'

MsgBox(0,"Is this the right command line?", $CmdLine)

All those single/double quote combos are making my head hurt, but with the above script you could tweak it till it comes out right. Of course, you could also do the same thing in your script by commenting out your RunWait() line and replacing it with the following until you had the string formatted right:

; Temporarily commented out
; RunWait('robocopy "' & @HomeDrive & '\Drivers"' & '\Test"' & ' "' & $var1 & ":\" & "\EUB\" & $var2 & " backup" & '\Desktop" /S /E /R:0 /W:0', "", @SW_SHOWNORMAL)
;

MsgBox(0, "Is this right?", 'robocopy "' & @HomeDrive & '\Drivers"' & '\Test"' & ' "' & $var1 & ":\" & "\EUB\" & $var2 & " backup" & '\Desktop" /S /E /R:0 /W:0', "")

Same effect, you get to see if the string is parsing as expected.

Try this line:

RunWait('RoboCopy "' & @HomeDrive & '\Drivers\Test" "' & $var1 & ':\EUB' & $var2 & 'backup\Desktop" /S /E /R:0 /W:0', '', @SW_SHOWNORMAL)

Becarefull testing your script in you own computer. I did a script using robocopy and I was under impresion that it didn't copy but found out the hard way that when you have a wrong syntax type on Robocopy actually copy everything into %WinDir%\System32 folder.
