Script or batch to copy XML on loop

I need to monitor a particular XML file on a Windows machine and copy it to a location every 10 seconds.  Right now, I use xcopy on a scheduled tasks, but that can only run once a minute.  I really need to copy the file every 10 seconds.  So I need a script or batch to copy the file, pause 10 secs, then run again, in a loop, unless there is another option.

Just use a batch that runs in an endless loop and waits 10 seconds between copies; you can use a scheduled task to run it at system startup, or start it once manually:
@echo off
setlocal
:Loop
echo [%Date%][%Time%]Copying ...
xcopy.exe ...
ping.exe -n 11 localhost >NUL
goto Loop
