I need help asap.

I need a script that will copy a folder and any file/subdirectory below it to a destination folder for multiple server names.  I want the script to look at a servers.txt file of all servers and then perform its copy for each server name specified in the TXT file.

Source:  \\server1\apps\logs\
Destination: c:\apps

After its done copying, I want the destination folder to be named the server name.

I will reward points asap!
