Want to write a batch file to move files over network drives

I tried to write a batch file and run the attached code in doc prompt, it returns "invalid number of parameter".   What did I do wrong?
XCOPY /e /v /y D:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL\BACKUP Y:\DB03_Backup\

Open in new window

Have you tried to use robocopy?

You would do that for the spaces
