Hi Support team,

I would like to remote copy one XML file from my PC to target user' PCs, to a specific folder. Can use Network Scanner tool to archive this?

The Network Scanner itself cannot copy the file for you.

However, if you have administrative shares enabled, you can scan the target computers to make them appear in the list. Then select them all and choose Actions - Create Batch File from the main menu. The command line template would be something like:
xcopy C:\Source\*.* \\%0\C$\Destination

This will enable you to generate a batch file that can copy other files:
