Windows – Copy files on Windows Command Line with Progress

batch-filescriptingwindows

I need to copy files using Windows command-line (available on XP Pro or later by default) and show progress during the process.

The progress indicator could be in a terminal or a GUI window. It is intended to be used during batch file scripting.

I used the copy command with the /z switch for copying over network drives. Also works for copying between local drives. Tested on XP Home edition.
