hi guys can anyone help me please
i have a folder with subfolders containing certain files that i use for 3 seperate pcs , i have made text lists of each set of files that go into each different pc , my question is can someone give me the proper batch command that would copy the files listed in each list into the directories i want including the subdirectories , have included a sample but this isnt working as it copies the files all over the place inside the new folder instead of keeping the folder structure

@setlocal enableextensions
for /f "delims=" %%i in (darlaprun.txt) do (
xcopy "%%i" "%wim%" /s /e /h /y

have also tried it with %%a but it still does same , i have certain folders with the same files in them but for different pcs and architectures and have 3 username lists which have only the files needed for each pc listed inside each text list

I think it may be prudent to provide sample lists and/or folder structures.

Ummm, no! "CD" instruction is more than likely irrelevant. The filenames are (apparently) withing a TXT file (see the Original Post).
