Using Robocopy

gerlis asked
Last Modified: 2015-07-06
I want to use Robocopy (or another free tool if necessary) to create a daily exact copy of a folder and the command “Robocopy /MIR sourceFolder  destinationFolder” does this.  

However, I want to create a new destination folder each time, possibly with the date in its name, something like 20150606destinationfolder. So that I can keep previous versions for as long as necessary. How can I modify the command to do this?
