What is the command that you are trying to use?  For some directories, you have to make sure you are using an Elevated Prompt.

How does your batch file determine where to store it's output? Can you post your batch or the part that does the storing?

Did you realy try to save to C\temp\xyz?
if that is the case, add a colon C:\temp\xyz

If you have a command test.bat that does some things, and what you want to save it what you would see on screen then you can simply run the command
C:\Utils\Test.bat >C:\temp\xyz\Test.log
However if you want the results of the processes run in your file test.bat, let say a created file then as others have suggested please show us what those processes are.
