If you want a great deal more granular control, you can try xxcopy:  http://www.xxcopy.com.

It takes a bit of learning time to search through the HUNDREDS of command line switches to find exactly what you want, but xxcopy will handle every conceivable permutation of copy/move/rename/archive type operations.  Best of all, it's free for personal use, and reasonable for commercial use.

(I just realized I sound like a sales advertisement.  Let me assure you, I am not affiliated with the makers of xxcopy in any way; I've just used the product myself, to create a batch file that will copy certain files to an alternate location, and then delete any files in the destination that are over 1 year old, thereby creating a 1 year self-cleaning archive.  It's not what I'd call easy to use, but it is very powerful.)
