XCOPY can probably get this job done.  Maybe something like:

XCOPY F:\registration C:\Windows\Registration /S /I


You can get additional info at a command prompt by doing:

XCOPY /?

As a matter of practice, I use XCOPY "x:\Source\*.*" "y:\Destination\Path" /E /C /H /O /V /Y

(That's "ECHO-V-Y" to remember it) and I strongly recommend ALWAYS enclosing the paths in quotes - while not necessary if you don't use spaces in file and folder names, it doesn't hurt and it helps ensure the command executes properly
