Hi,

Find the below examples of PSExec, you can open and copy the files on remote machine.

but only for coping the files to remote server you can use XCOPY command.
xcopy \\yimm\source\*.* \\yimm\target

You can use PSexec to open files on a remote computer however this probably wont do what you want. Depending on who is logged on the file may open but never be visible to them. If user A is logged on to the computer but you run psexec as user B then they will never see it since psexec will open the document under the user context it is run as.

Also as Santosh mentioned you could do a copy with psexec but there are much easier ways of doing it using xcopy, robocopy, etc.
