Copy a property along with its value

      Copy-ItemProperty [[-path] | [-literalPath] ] string[]
         [[-destination] string[]] [-name string] [-force]
            [-incude string[] ] [-exclude string[] ]
               [-filter string] [-passThru]  [-credential PSCredential]
                  [-whatIf] [-confirm] [-UseTransaction] [CommonParameters]
    -path string
        The items to copy, Wildcards are permitted.

    -literalPath string
        Like Path above, only the value is used exactly as typed.
        No characters are interpreted as wildcards. If the path includes any
        escape characters then enclose the path in single quotation marks.

    -destination string
        Where the items are to be copied.

    -name string 
        The name of the property to copy.

        Override restrictions that prevent the command from succeeding, apart
        from security settings. e.g. Force will create file path directories 
        or override a files read-only attribute, but will not change file permissions.

    -include string
        Copy only the specified items from the Path. e.g. "May*"

    -exclude string
        Omits the specified items from the Path e.g. "*SS64*"

    -filter string
        A filter in the provider’s format or language. 
        The exact syntax of the filter (wildcard support etc) depends on the provider.
        Filters are more efficient than -include/-exclude, because the provider
        applies the filter when retrieving the objects, rather than having 
        PowerShell filter the objects after they are retrieved.

    -credential PSCredential
        Uses a credential to validate access to the file. Credential represents
        a user-name, such as "User01" or "Domain01\User01", or a PSCredential
        object, such as the one retrieved using Get-Credential.
        This parameter appears, but it is not yet supported in any PowerShell core 
        cmdlets or providers.

        Pass the object through the pipeline.

        Describe what would happen if you executed the command without actually
        executing the command.

        Prompt for confirmation before executing the command.

       Include the command in the active transaction.
