Some reminders about dos commands.





Issue the command with the /? parameter to get help.


I used xcopy 32 (recently) to copy a Win95 image with installed applications (but that didn't work on a particular machine) over a freshly installed Win95 and working image (but without applications) and it appears (still testing) I got the applications to work. I used the c, e, r, and k switches, like this (I did this from a dos command line "within" the working Win95 installation, thus files in use were not written over):

xcopy32 /c /e /r /k e:\*.* c:\

Other recommended switches by resources I reviewed at the time included h, y, f, and s. (The source was Xcopy32 vs Xcopy.)

Here's one resource: Microsoft Knowledge Base Article - 289483: Switches That You Can Use with Xcopy and Xcopy32
