Copying Files in SQL Server

Hello everyone,

In this article, I will provide information about copying files in SQL Server.

In some cases, it may be necessary to copy files in SQL Server.

You can perform the copy operation using the code below. As an example, I created a text file named copy into the D drive. I want this file to be copied in the name copy2.

Note: The code below may not work on the driver on the operating system.

EXECUTE sys.xp_cmdshell 'COPY D:\copy.txt D:\copy2.txt', no_output;

When you run the code and look at the D drive, you will see the following result.

As you can see, the copy operation was successful.

Good luck to everyone in business and life.
