First I need to search a UNC path \\FW18\shared\Essbase\Backups or %targetdir% for any directory ending in the variable 'dayofweek' and delete that directory. So if %dayofweek%=fri than any folder ending in fri is deleted.  No prompts, etc.. force deleted. Non case sensitive.

Second I need to 'move' a whole folder named %shortname% to a UNC path \\FW18\shared\Essbase\Backups which is a variable too named 'targetdir'.  It needs to move it no matter what.  No prompting and overwrite if target directory already exists.  %shortname% example is '03262010_Fri'

I prefer windows batch as I'm currently trying to modify and existing .bat file to do this.  Having issues with UNC path.. Batch doesn't like it?  I can xcopy it ok, just cant figure out how to move etc....
