Copy the file through script and file generation

Hi ...

OS Win 2008 R2 64bit.
I experienced some issues while settings up backup for PostgreSQL...found compatible issue. Finally decided to run script for copy the backup file with file generation.

I am good at script, request your help...

Backup.bak file store in local drive, location d:\data\back\backup.audit
I want to run the script which will copy the file everyday or weekly from the above location to D:\generation

I am looking for script which will copy the file in sequence with date and time it copy..also possible of having log file to know the file name change from source file to new file name with ddmmyyyyhhmmss.

Can you please help me....

@echo off
set datetimef=%date:~-4%_%date:~-7,2%_%date:~-10,2%_%time:~0,2%_%time:~3,2%_%time:~6,2%
echo %datetime%
cp d:\data\back\backup.audit D:\generation\backup_%datetime%.audit

the above script creates out put in format  backup_2014_28_02_13_08_43.audit

you can then invoke the script from windows scheduler
