I have a Symbol handheld (MC9000) that is attached to a pc via a USB connection.  Under windows xp it shows up as a mobile device.  Is there a way i can run a dos batch script to move specific files from the mobile device to my pc root drive ("C")?

this looks like it might work, i am trying to move files from the mobile device to my pc.  On the mobile device the files are in a directory called application data.
I am struggling with the syntax , i have tried "cecopy /s dev:\application data\*.* c:\data  and also "cecopy /s dev:\applic~1\*.* c:\data, but neither work

I'm not sure. I don't have cecopy here at work, but I wonder if there isn't a command line option that will do that. Does the help for cecopy say anything about this?

cecopy /?
