batch files

By david.bunten ·
I'm trying to get a batch file using the xcopy command to copy files at a certain time. Is there anyway I can add a date tag to the file name as its copied so its easier to see when the file was copied as there are about 20 files at a time being copied.

Batch scheduling

by support In reply to batch files

Dear David,

I can recommend you the site:

where you can find great examples of the scripts, some also about date, time etc.

Also I can recommend you to do the classical job/task scheduling as on big host computers, but on the Windows environment.

Task3000 is basically very good integrator of various scripts, and enables you simple loging of the job/task execution.

With best regards,

I think you are asking for more than just a scheduler, right? You want to change the time stamp on the files when copied? You can get shareware dos versions of the UNIX touch command to change the time/date stamp on files.

Give a bit more detail. What is the job doing?
