New XCOPY Switches
There are quite some new switches added to the XCOPY command as Windows 95/98/NT are 32-bit Operating Systems. Below are some of the additions over the old XCOPY command from DOS 6.x.
* /C - Continues copying even if errors occur * /I - If destination does not exist and copying more than one file, assumes that destination must be a directory * /Q - Does not display file names while copying * /F - Displays full source and destination file names while copying * /L - Displays files that would be copied * /H -Copies hidden and system files also * /R - Overwrites read-only files * /T - Creates directory structure, but does not copy files. Does not include empty directories or subdirectories. /T /E includes empty directories and subdirectories * /U - Updates the files that already exist in destination * /K - Copies attributes. Normal XCOPY will reset read-only attributes * /Y - Overwrites existing files without prompting * /-Y - Prompts you before overwriting existing files * /N - Copy using the generated short names
