HI: stergium,qlemo and gurutc very kindly helped me set up a remote execution of a batch file. I This is great and I was wondering if psexec does more:
I am wanting to copy a file now, to the local directory of the server.
Does psexec allow me to copy a file from r:\data\deliveries\mapper.csv to c:\mapsuploader\mapper.csv, if the R drive is the same for pc and server, and a file of that name already exists (ie overwrite)?
Thanks!

No; psexec will only copy the program to be executed to the remote machine.
But nothing keeps you from using a batch script to first copy the file from your client and then run psexec:
@echo off
setlocal
copy R:\data\deliveries\mapper.csv \\Server\C$\mapsuploader\mapper.csv
psexec \\Server -h C:\mapsuploader\mapsuploader.exe C:\mapsuploader\mapper.csv
