Create a file called copyit.bat

Open the file and type:
  copy c:\winpcace\pctrans.dat x:\claims.txt

Save the copyit.bat file

Run it whenever you like

If you don't like to be prompted, add /Y to the copy line:
   copy /y c:\winpcace\pctrans.dat x:\claims.txt

Can't help you with that.  If you don't have permissions to write to the destination, you'll need to talk to your network administrator.

For a test, try following line, and tell us if it errors out:
  copy nul x:\claims.txt
