need some assitance with xcopy command
Posted on 2013-12-18
I want to create a bat file that will copy files from one directory to another but I ran into a question I dont know the answer to. I need to move a single file from directory A to directory B everyday. A new file is created in directory A every day (the directory will continually build 1 file a day) but when the file is moved to directory B it is moved by an automated process to another directory. So on day two we now have 2 files in directory A and zero files in directory B but I only want to copy the new file from directory A not both files because the first file came across on day one and was processed. How can I set it up so it will not copy the same file twice even though the file doesnt exist in directory B any longer?
I would like to use a simple xcopy bat file for this if possible and set it up as a scheduled task..
