Need a Copy Batch File to reference a File

Need a Copy Batch File to reference a File

I need to create a batch file to copy files that are reference in a Text file.  I dont want to copy anything other than what is in the text file.  I need it re-create the directory structure in the destination.

Here is what I have so far (that is not working).

for /F "delims=*" %%i in (C:\lists.txt) do echo F| xcopy /S /I /Y c:\folder\%%i "%%i"c:\bkup\

I have tried this as well but no luck

for /F %%a in (C:\lists.txt) do echo xcopy *.pdf /S /I /Y  c:\bkup
