In this case you do not want to use the copy command but XCOPY

Goto your command prompt and type in

xcopy c:\a.txt d:\ /c

/C parameter is to suppress and error dialog boxes

type xcopy /? to find out more paramters

Hope this helps!

I am sorry I have to reopen this. There was typo in my path that's why it worked.

I am trying to copy and place one file to 'System32\Drivere\ETC' directory.

The above solution does not work in this case.
