Copies one or more files to another location.
COPY [/A | /B] source [destination] [/N] [/Q] [/V]
source Specifies the file(s) to be copied. destination Specifies the directory and/or filename for the new file(s). /A Ignored. /B Ignored. /N Use short file name equivalents instead of long file names. /Q Quiet Mode. Only Error Messages are displayed. /V Verifies that new files are written correctly.
All files are opened in binary mode.
The current directory is used when the parameter destination is not specified.
When copying files that have long file names from an NTFS partition to a FAT partition, that does not support long file names, the /N switch must be specified to convert the long file names to the equivalent short file names, otherwise the copy operation will fail.
COPY does not support appending of files.
