Hello Gurus,
I need a batch file to copy files according to their creation date.
I am backing up files and I need to copy only the newest files to a DVD instead of all backups .
thanks

As can xcopy

xcopy /d:(date) C:\source\*.bkf d:\

 /D:m-d-y     Copies files changed on or after the specified date.
              If no date is given, copies only those files whose
              source time is newer than the destination time.

You could also use the archive bit to identify files that hadn't already been backed up and use that to do it, have a look at the /a and /m switches for xcopy.
