I need to a quick dos batch to accomplish the following:

1. if not exist \\server2\share\%username%\appdata\roaming\vlc
mkdir \\server2\share\%username%\appdata\roaming\vlc
copy \\server1\share\vlc\vlc-qt-interface.ini \\server2\share\%username%\appdata\roaming\vlc\vlc-qt-interface.ini /y

2. if exist \\server2\share\%username%\appdata\roaming\vlc
just copy \\server1\share\vlc\vlc-qt-interface.ini \\server2\share\%username%\appdata\roaming\vlc\vlc-qt-interface.ini /y and overwrite the existing file.  

Would some put it together with the right syntax?  

I do not mind if someone can suggest the PS version that does the same.  

Thanks.

I think this is what you are trying to doi:

@echo off
setlocal

set DestDir=\\server2\share\%username%\appdata\roaming\vlc
set IniFile=\\server1\share\vlc\vlc-qt-interface.ini

if not exist "%DestDir%" mkdir "%DestDir%"
copy /y "%IniFile%" "%DestDir%" >NUL
