Using Windows GUI copy command from a script or batch file

Discussion in 'NZ Computing' started by Chris Caldwell, Jan 12, 2011.

  1. Does anyone have a simple solution to how I can call the Windows copy
    command so that I can see the standard copy dialog box copying the file and
    giving me the time left etc? Just like when you drag and drop or copy and
    paste a file in Explorer. I just want something simple other than the dos
    copy or xcopy command which doesn't give you any idea how long it will take.

    Thanks.

  2. Looks good, thanks. Simple to use and can run from a dos prompt. Perfect!
