Hello,

can someone help me with this problem?

I'm would count the files in a folder and i want to move the first 8 files to an other folder. I can move the files but it doesn't stop because it doesn't count.

this is the code:

set var=0

cd %Temp%\%%x\

For %%I in (*) do (
IF %var% LSS 8 (
Set /a var=%var%+1 /// this doesn't work, it will not count
echo %var%
xcopy "%%I" Folder\
)
)
