Batch to move files and folders
Posted on 2011-02-18
Today, and each Friday, I need to clean out my desktop files and folders which have filled my two 22inch screens since Monday. I use the desktop as a bit of a temp folder.
I was wondering if its possible to create a batch script which does the following;
1) Create a folder on the desktop named "Desktop BU" (but don't if it already exists)
2) Create a sub-folder in the Desktop BU folder which is named with a date stamp, in example "BU 18 Feb 2011" (or any other date format) (but don't if it already exists)
2) Move all files and folders (including all sub-folders and files) from the desktop to the folder created in step two (or the folder that already had that date stamp)
2A) Do not move certain Files, Folders, or Shortcuts. I can specify these as they will always be the same.
No rush with this one but much appreciated, by myself and undoubtedly many colleagues.
