Need help with Batch file

Hello all, I am not good with scripting at all, so please please help me out...

I am trying to create a script to copy and overwrite files from one folder to another folder, an example would be I want all the files copied from C:\Documents and Settings\lxktvq\Desktop\News into the C:\RDC Labels\old I would like any duplicates to be overwritten without prompting me.

This is for I have a couple hundred standalone computers, and I have a folder full of updates that is on my desktop that needs to be distributed from one folder to about 15 different folders, on 3 different drives.

So if possible I would just like a sample code just to get me started on copying/overwriting duplicate files, creating folders, and deleting folders.

Please your assistance is really appreciated.

Thanks,
Chad

    The DOS copy command has a parameter /y suppresses prompting to overwrite files. /-y causes prompting for overwriting files.
    The switch /y maybe preset in the copycmd environment variable. The default is to prompt for overwrites unless a COPY command is being executed from within a batch script file.

    When in dos type Help for command list. type command name /? to see format of the command.
