I'm trying to archive the weekly meeting documents that are emailed to a SharePoint 2010 document library. I would like to automate the moving of documents to a date specific folder. For example. On Thursday 140919 copy all documents from this library, then create a new folder with the date that contains in the name of document name then move it to the date folder.  

I would like try this with a workflow, but manual workflow so i can test it.

thanks

I would like to recommend a different approach.  Folders is what most people are familiar with but SharePoint promotes using metadata such that it can be use in a search. So instead of doing folders; how about trying the following:

1. Add a calculated field to your library (which is really a list).
2. The Calculated field will generate a weekly date based on the file being created (uploaded) in the Document library.
3. Then create a view(s) of the library based on the Calculated Weekly date. All your files are actually in the same folder, but different views give the appearance of only the week you want.
