I need a script that will copy files from a folder based on modified date.  In other words, I would give it a date/time such as '2008-10-26 17:08' and it would copy all files in the folder I specify which were modified after that time.

I would prefer one that looks thru subfolders as well but that's not imperative.

I know that XCOPY allows selection based on date, but I need date and time

Thanks

the third item on second link seems the best. It uses
If Fdate >= DateSerial(2006, 10, 1)

then modify to
If Fdate >= DateSerial(2008, 10, 26) + TimeSerial(17,07,00) then  ''ie 2008-10-26 17:08'
         FileInFromFolder.Copy ToPath
        End If
