Simple copy Command

Recommended Posts

think of it this way. the copy command needs two arguments. The first one is the file you are going to copy, the second is the destination to copy it two. CMD.exe splits the arguments up with spaces. So it is kind of like this, you used 4 arguments

copy(command)  test.txt(first argument)  C:\documents(second argument)  and(third argument)  settings\desktop(fourth argument)

by using quotes you have just two arguments

copy(command)  test.txt(first argument)  "C:\documents and settings\desktop"(second argument)
