Windows Batch to Copy Files in an Excluded Set

Last Modified: 2015-08-17
Dear Experts,

I would like to write a batch script (CMD) to copy files from c:\temp of one Windows machine to a shared folder let's say pshared in another machine. However, the script should copy files with names not starting with B,DE and F. How can I achieve this?

Best Regards
