All you need to do is add the /EXCLUDE switch, like below...
echo on
 xcopy d:\  H:\  /s /e /D /Y /C /EXCLUDE:.HLUTBTE

Open in new window


Below is the exact help from xcopy /?
/EXCLUDE:file1[+file2][+file3]...
             Specifies a list of files containing strings.  Each string
             should be in a separate line in the files.  When any of the
             strings match any part of the absolute path of the file to be
             copied, that file will be excluded from being copied.  For
             example, specifying a string like \obj\ or .obj will exclude
             all files underneath the directory obj or all files with the
             .obj extension respectively.

Will is right but however I couldn't make it work this way. So I used a text file with all the extensions that needed to be excluded and used the EXCLUDE flag like this instead;

/EXCLUDE:Drive:\exclusionFileName.txt

I'd use robocopy for that (assuming you're running Vista or later):
robocopy.exe D:\ H:\ *.* /xf *.HLUTBTE /e /r:0 /w:0

Open in new window

Note that robocopy will by default not copy files that already exist in the target folder with the same date and the same size; you'll find those under "skipped" in the summary at the end.
