What's the purpose of this copy? If you want to do it all using batch loops, you don't need robocopy. If you want to use robocopy, you don't need a loop.

Please see my comment to the question. Are you merging all directories into one? Then you can have problems: some sub-directories/files in different merging branches can have identical names; another possible problem is permission. You need to check it up.

You are merging them in one, right? Then I described the problems you might have. Please check up.
