Specs: DOS
Hey guys, I'm trying to put a batch together in DOS to copy files generated by an app today only and put them in a "today" folder.

I've already written code to increment the folder by date. I have it creating the "today" folder.

Now to get code to incorporate a "copy today files to the today folder" command.

Then to put it all together - shake - stir - and see what pops out the other end.

Thanx up front,

Actually, the OS is XP, but I'm writing in the command interpreter which comes with the XP opsys. So far the code is working fine, with the exception of the following.....

I need to copy files dated today "only", on a count of the fact that they are graphics/data files - huge. I just picked up a 1TByte external drive, But that will even fill rather quickly at 6Gig a copy*2.
