How do I create a daily folder with a naming convention like this 2012.09.11 as name in a particular folder - where 9 is the month and 11 is the day – in command shell and save it as batch script?

Adding the below line in a script and running the script daily, maybe via task scheduler, will create a folder with the current date in the requested format. change C:\mydir\ to the location where you want the folder created.

md C:\mydir\%date:~-4,4%.%date:~-10,2%.%date:~-7,2%
