Some clarification is needed.

Do you want to copy files from L:\ to K:\NewFolder based on which files already exist in K:\?
Nirmal SharmaSolution ArchitectAuthor Commented:

yes please.
This script should do what you're asking.  Copy everything below the line into a text file with a .cmd extension.  Either place it in the same directory as robocopy.exe or place robocopy somewhere in the path.

Please test this before using it in a production environment.

@echo off

REM The directory to copy files from
set Source=L:\

REM The directory to check files against
Set CheckAgainst=K:\

REM The directory to copy files to
Set Destination=K:\NewFolder

REM Exclude all files modified on or after this date
Set CheckDate=20061018

REM The command to compare file ages
set CheckAge=robocopy "%source%" "%checkagainst%" /minage:%checkdate% /L /NS /NC /NJH /NJS

for /F "tokens=* skip=2" %%G in ('%CheckAge%') do robocopy "%source%" "%destination%" "%%G" >NUL
