Copy Folders Locally From Network

I want to run this from a command line  

cscript.exe //nologo copy.vbs "source" "destination"

I need the code for copy.vbs that can take the source that I type in and copy it to the destination that I type in.  I need the copy.vbs script to use my input on the command line as the variable for a copy folder vbscript.

Does anyone know how to do this?

Thanks

Not sure how to do that in VBs, but it's Very simple in batch:

::Begin Batch Script
::Script Name: DoCopy.bat
XCopy "%~1" "%~2" /Z /Y
:: End batch script

You would write at the command line:

DoCopy.bat "Source" "destination"

However it really does beg the question, why don't you simply type this at the command prompt:

XCopy "Source" "Destination" /z /Y

Or better yet if the system is vista/2kgor 7. Use robocopy instead of xcopy.

Thank you for your post but it has to be VB.  I am using it in MDT 2010 in a task sequence and have not been able to get anything but vbscript to work.

Thanks
I will try it and let you know.

Alternatively, there is no need for more answers as I wrote a Powershell one and tested it successfully while waiting on an answer.

That VB script worked thank you so much!

If anyone wants a powershell one copy this easy code into a text and save it as Copy.ps1.

usage = powershell.exe -file copy.ps1 "source" "destination"
