DISKCOPY [d:] [d:][/1][/V][/M]
Purpose: Makes an exact copy of a diskette.
This command is used only for copying diskettes, not fixed disks.
The first drive you specify is the drive for the source diskette. The
the drive for the target diskette. DISKCOPY checks to determine if the
the target drive has been previously formatted. If not, DISKCOPY will
before it starts the copy (except in early versions of DOS).
If the target drive is the same as the source drive (or if you do not
drive designator), the copying will be done using one drive. The program
prompt you when to insert each diskette.
For more information on using the DISKCOPY command, refer to Chapter 2,
Common DOS Commands.
/1 - Copies only the first side of the diskette, even if the target

/V - Verifies that the source data was copied correctly onto the
drive. Selecting this option will slow down the copying process.
/M - Forces DISKCOPY to use only conventional memory for interim
during the copy procedure. Normally, DISKCOPY uses the hard disk for
purpose. (New with DOS Version 6.)
