Batch script to move/delete files

Specs: Win 2003 Server, 3.2 GHZ / 3.5 GB
I am trying to write a batch script that moves all files from one network folder to another network folder. On the destination folder, I need to delete any files older than 3 days from after the move occurred. So if they files were moved on 1/8/07, they need to be deleted after 1/11/07. Here's what I have so far:

echo %*|fs /c:"Database backed up:"||exit 1
move x:\*.* y:\

The move is not working with this script, and I didn't know how to acquire the date stamp for the deletion. Thanks!!

If you havent already try using xcopy to move and delete the files.

Open up a command prompt and type XCOPY /? for all the commands....It can also be made into a batch file simply by using notepad.

Good luck..

If it isn't broken, break it. It keeps us in a job!
