I want to copy several directories from one hard disk to another (and pn a regular basis), but some directories (folders) I do not want to include. So using xcopy I simply cannot make the syntax right, driving me mad!

I need a one-liner Xcopy command that will do two things:

- copy the directory (folder) structure
- exclude one particular directory (which has a space in it)

So something like:

xcopy "e:\*.*  f:\*.* /e/f/y /exclude:directory name
