Default Batch file copy

Hi, I wondering if anyone can give a bit of advice on batch file creation.

I have 3 pc's which I want to back up a file from once a week. I have created a batch which will copy the file across but I have to do one pc at a time and move the file before I run the second batch for the second pc.

I was wondering if I can launch a pclist.txt with the 3 pc's listed in the .txt file from the batch and make each pc create a folder on my pc with each of the pc's name for the files to copy into to.

Like pauls\c$\c3\{random file} to mine\c$\files\pauls\{random file}

I hope that makes sense.

Out of my depth on answering your question - however, have you considered a Cloud backup solution? Microsoft Skydrive, and Google GDrive, both offer decent storage for free, and you can access the files from any PC you authorise.
