I am looking for a powershell script that I can run via a scheduled task OR run Manually that will:

Copy a file from a UNC Share to the C:\Test Directory and time how long it takes
Then I want the script to copy that same file from the C:\Test directory to the R:\data directory and time how long it takes.

Then create a report that shows how long each part took and calculate the average transfer rate.

You could use this and modify it

$File1Start = Get-Date
Copy C:\TestDirectory C:\Destination -Recurse
$File1End = Get-Date

$File2Start = Get-Date
Copy C:\Destination C:\Destination2 -Recurse
$File2End = Get-Date

echo $File1Start
echo $File1End

echo $File2Start
echo $File2End
