move from F:\epic\epic_daily\backups\"filename.bak"(based on most recent date modified) to

This is not a .bat file... but it will do what you are asking.

It is free for personal use.... otherwise I believe there is a fee for business use.


I recently recommended this in another experts-exchange question... and the author really liked it after he tried it.

Try to use Microsoft Synctoy 2.0 which will do the task that you are looking out for instead of creating batch file.
You can configure it to copy files from target to destination and keep or delete the files from the target.

Thanks. This is exactly what I was looking for.

Thanks for the other responses but Robocopy is what the Dr. ordered.
