Need a script that would copy the latest (modified date) file that starts with “c36”

FILE:  C36*.TXT (if duplicate exists, then copy only the lates file)
SOURCE = \\d9d75pardb01\Paragon Upload Files\Remittances\  
TARGET = \\ela-ps1\medicare remits$\Mcare 835 ERAs\

The folder will ocasionally have more than one file with same date, but different times:

FILE NAME, CREATE DATE
C2500013352A, 06/23/2013@1601
C360005edc1D, 06/24/2013@1055
C25000urf1055, 06/24/2013@1055
C36000qwe255, 06/24/2013@1315  <<<  i want to be able to copy only this file >>>>

REM - SETTING VARIABLES
setlocal enabledelayedexpansion
set Source=\\d9d75pardb01\Paragon

REM - SEARCH FOR EXISTING FILES
for /f "tokens=1 delims=[]" %%a in ('type "%~f0" ^| find /n "[BACKUPDATA]"') do set DataStart=%%a
set /a TypeCount = 0

REM - COPY 
for /f "tokens=1* skip=%DataStart% delims= " %%a in ('type "%~f0"') do (
	set /a TypeCount += 1
	set SourceType[!TypeCount!]=%%a
	set Target[!TypeCount!]=%%b
)
for /l %%i in (1, 1, %TypeCount%) do (
	robocopy.exe "%Source%" "!Target[%%i]!" !SourceType[%%i]! /MIR /r:2 /w:1
)
goto :eof
[BACKUPDATA]
C36*.* \\ela-ps1\medicare remits$\Mcare 835 ERAs\
