asked on

.bat to backup certain file adding date and sequence # to end of the file name.

I used to know how to do this, I even wrote them and used them on jobs. I had a couple of handy DOS batch file books once upon a time..

Help save me some time (and if you could also give me a link to a good online batch command resource I'd appreciate it).

I want a batch file to backup this file:

C:\Documents and Settings\Myname\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\q4lyst7r.default\sessionstore.js

and place it into the folder c:\firefoxback\

I want to name the backups by date and sequentially such as:
sessionstore2013.05.11.01.js
sessionstore2013.05.11.02.js

The current  yyyy.mm.dd.## could be stored in a .txt/.lst file for easy determination of the next name or could be determined by looking at existing file names.
