Yes, sorry, I tried the *.* option to copy all files, and as I mentioned it
copies ALL files including the .bat file. If I limit it to finding only the
types of files I want to copy then it works, in my case*.xml. But it is rather
limiting in the case that I had, say, 10 different file types I would have
Anyway, I'll keep playing with it.

Good stuff. This is why it's so nice to have a little DOS in your pocket so you
can customize it for the way you work.
Are you copying *.*? That copies everything. I don't know of an exclusionary
command with copy, but it may exist-I'm not an expert, I just troll the web
until I find what I need. ;-)
For now, to copy everything except *.bat, you would need to specify only the
file types to be copied, as in *.fm, *.backup.fm, *.backup.book, *.log, etc.
Copy *.backup.fm *.backup.book *.log *.pdf .\ProjectBackup\
