COPY. A copy is a true transcript of an original writing.
     2. Copies cannot be given in evidence, unless proof is made that the originals, from which they are taken, are lost, or in the power of the opposite party; and in the latter case, that notice has been given him to produce the original.

To prove a copy of a record, the witness must be able to swear that he has examined it, line for line, with the original, or has examined the copy, while another person read the original. 1 Campb. R. 469. It is not requisite that the persons examining should exchange, papers, and read them alternately. 2 Taunt. R. 470. Vide, generally, 3 Bouv. Inst. n. 3106-10; 1 Stark. R. 183; 2 E. C. L.

XCOPY accomplishes the same task by reading as many files into RAM as it can fit.
Other improvements become obvious when you look at what you can do with the switches that are available for XCOPY. If you wanted to make a mirror back-up of a directory and its subdirectories using the COPY command, you would need to first create the directory and each subdirectory on the back-up disk, then enter COPY *.*.
WK1 files, you could enter XCOPY *.TEXT A: /S in the root directory and every file with a .TXT extension in every subdirectory would be copied.
If you use XCOPY to do back-ups regularly, two switches that may save some time are /A and /M.
The archive bit is set by XCOPY, BACKUP, and RESTORE.
