If a filename contains spaces you will need to quote it as follows:

xcopy "D:\CBT Nuggets Archive Server\CBT Nuggets\files\videos\*.*" c:\temp /c

As I mentioned in an earlier post, you will need a few more switches to copy all subdirectories, etc.  This should work:

XCOPY /S /C /I /H "D:\CBT Nuggets Archive Server\CBT Nuggets\files\videos\*.*" c:\temp

~bp
