I found the examples of documentation about archive_command and
restore_command for Windows are incorrect or improper.

 - "copy" doesn't accept / (slash) as a path separator.
   We should use \\ (double backslash) for the purpose.
 - Windows path is typically starts with a drive letter (C:\\).
 - We'd better to quote a whole path, not only the last filename
   with double-quotes. It can work, but is not a windows manner.
