    $exitcode = Start-Process -FilePath $RobocopyPath -ArgumentList $RobocopyOptions -Wait -NoNewWindow -PassThru
    $lastexitcode = $exitcode.ExitCode
    if (($lastexitcode -eq 1)) {
    Write-Verbose"Copy from [$SourcePath] to [$DestinationPath] completed successfully with exit code: [$lastexitcode] One of more files were copied successfully."

    Struggling with trying capture and test $lastexitcode from pester. Any help much appreciated.

    I was able to get a successful run by using this:

    Describe 'robocopy' {
         It 'Should return 0 or 1 on LASTEXITCODE' {
              $Source=New-Item TestDrive:\Temp -ItemType Directory
              $Destination=New-Item TestDrive:\Test -ItemType Directory
              robocopy $Source $Destination -E
              $LASTEXITCODE|Should BeLessOrEqual 1


    Executing all tests in 'C:\temp'
    Executing script C:\temp\Robocopy.Tests.ps1
    Describing robocopy
    [+] Should return 0 or 1 on LASTEXITCODE 31ms
