I need to copy a file from a network drive to my c drive

Specs: Windows 7

I want to copy a file from my network drive onto a PC and over write the one on the PC. I have been trying to do it with XCOPY but when I point to the network drive it says that it is invalid.. However if I go through the steps (copying the file from the network drive to the local drive) the drive is there and is valid.

Why not just copy and paste in Windows Explorer?

By the way, your post doesn't make a lot of sense. In your first sentence, you say you can't copy, in your second sentence you say you can.
If you have spaces in the file name, you need to encompass the file path with quotes IE -

"C:\my file.exe" or "\\fileservername\my file.exe"
