Try running the *full* command, with the part containing the plus,
and see what happens:

[all in one line]
copy /Y "C:\rep\documentation\trunk\MEMSplus\*.jpg" 
C:\rep\documentation\trunk\MEMS+OmniHelp\MEMSplus

That is what we run,  I'll bet that it does *not* copy the files.
If you really remove the plus from the directory name, it will.

In the copy command, "+" means to concatenate the file before
the plus with the file after the plus.
