    COPY source destination /V /-Y

    Source specifies the file or files to be copied.
    /V verifies that new files are written correctly
    /-Y Causes prompting to confirm you want to overwrite an existing destination file

    So If you wanted to copy joebloggs.txt from A:\ to C:

    Copy a:\joebloggs.txt c: /v /-y
