dos batch file
not sure if thsi is even possible have looked around on the web and can't seem to find out how to do it. any feed back well appreciated. all i wanna do is check the date a file was created and if it's older than x do something this might make it simpler

batch file

net time \\192.168.0.2 /set /y
net use x: \\192.168.0.2\tbackup
net use y: \\192.168.0.2\mbackup


check date of backup file in mbackup if older than 1 month force backup and place in mbackup

ntbackup backup "C:\documents and settings\%username%" /f "C:\backup\%username%.bkf"



check date of backup in tbackup if older than 5 days ask do they wanna do a backup and place in tbackup


if yes

ntbackup backup "C:\documents and settings\%username%" /f "C:\backup\%username%.bkf"

else
exit


tbackup is temp'e backup
mbackup is monthly backup


cheers in advance

You'll have to do the calendar math yourself but here's the skeleton:

>>>

@echo off
set thefile=temp_script.vbs

rem create datestamp (handles both W2K and 2K3 returned dates)
for /f "tokens=1-3* delims=/ " %%i in ( "%date:~-10%" ) do (
   set nowday=%%i
   set nowmonth=%%j
   set nowyear=%%k
)

rem get file datestamp
for /f "tokens=1-3 delims=/ " %%i in ('dir /tw temp_script.vbs^|find "%thefile%"') do (
   set fileday=%%i
   set filemonth=%%j
   set fileyear=%%k
)

echo %thisfile%
echo File modified: %fileday%/%filemonth%/%fileyear%
echo Today is: %nowday%/%nowmonth%/%nowyear%

set /a yeardiff=%nowyear%-%fileyear%
set /a monthdiff=%nowmonth%-%filemonth%
set /a daydiff=%nowday%-%fileday%

echo Years diff: %yeardiff%
echo Months diff: %monthdiff%
echo Days diff: %daydiff%

pause

Oh, should've said: line 2, "temp_script.vbs" is just a test file I pulled the modify date back from while playing with the script.
