"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I will give a general answer to MOST command line commands....

Look for HELP or MAN (manual)  page, and then note options with...  -v (dash and v), --v ( 2 dashes and v) or -verbose  (dash with word verbose) or --verbose (2 dashes and verbose) , :-)

Note in many cases  -v is version and in some cases -v is verbose... so check the command's specific syntax.

yes xcopy has one of these :-)
