How to Copy directory/files from windows command line/prompt

COPY – It will allow you to quickly copy files from one location to another location.

Syntex > copy source_file_name destination_file_name

XCOPY – The xcopy command allows you to copy files and directories from one location to another location. This makes it much more suitable for copying folders. xcopy also has many modifiers which gives advanced users more control over the copying process.

Syntex > xcopy /E /I source_dir_name destination_die_name

Reference of /E and /I
/E – This option makes sure that empty subfolders are copied to the destination.
/I – Avoids prompting if the destination is a folder or file.
