      $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
