I am trying to copy some files from a shared network drive to my desktop when I use xcopy /C sooner or later I get an error The handle is invalid. Is there perhaps another way to copy the files so that I don't run into that problem? The only tools I can use are the those already built into windows 7 (i.e. powershell and cmd). Also no ftp.
