Download XXCopy
XXCOPY, A Versatile File Management Utility --- Boldly Extended Xcopy
This is a vastly improved and extended version of DOS XCopy
Sorry, can't remember the syntax, but its quite simple if you read the manuel carefully
Put the command line in a .bat file and it will run

Standard XCOPY should handle this without needing to download XXCOPY, though XXCOPY looks pretty interesting. Try both?
