Is there an easy way to add todays date to file names using .CMD

I want to copy all the files in a folder and create copies with today's date added to the file name

The folder would contain
test.txt
test2.txt
and after running the .cmd file the folder would contain
test.txt
test2.txt
test10072008.txt
test10072008.txt

thanks for the help
