if I remember right, XCOPY is older than any networking stuff on this

Using xcopy, is kind of silly and wont get you compatiblity...... especially in scripts....
Portability to non-Windows systems is of course a problem but xcopy is
present on every install of Windows that has ever existed going back to
some very old version of MS-DOS so it is probably one of the most
portable commands in existance on this platform.
