I have written a small DOS .bat file copied below to archive local files to the network regularly ~ which is working well.
The problem is XDate is in the format DD-MM-YYYY and archives are sorting themselves by day not by date.
How do I change the format to YYYY-MM-DD?
for /f "tokens=1-3 delims=/- " %%a in ('date /t') do set XDate=%%a-%%b-%%c
for /f "tokens=1-2 delims=: " %%a in ('time /t') do set XTime=%%a.%%b
echo %XDate% %XTime%
xcopy "c:\temp\databases\*.*" "\\\Archive\%Xdate%_DatabaseArchive" /s /y
