Batch file creating another batch file

Specs: Windows 7, Pentium R/3GB Ram
I am trying to create a batch file that creates another batch file then outputs to a text file when a certain exe closes.

@ECHO OFF
ECHO restarted exe %%Date%% %%Time%% >> C:\Log.txt >>"C:\test.bat"

The test.bat is created but it only displays: restarted exe %DATA% %TIME%

Is there any way for it to include the >>C:\log.txt ?

The redirection symbol > has special meaning in the Command Shell so must be Escaped in order to be treated as a literal. ^>^> should work.

Good luck
