I need some help to restore the last backup folder from the USB pen drive based on the code below.

@echo off
setlocal enabledelayedexpansion
set Source=C:\Data
set TargetRoot=F:
REM The next line sets the following DateTime variables: DT_Day, DT_DayOfWeek, DT_Hour, DT_Minute, DT_Month, DT_Quarter, DT_Second, DT_WeekInMonth, DT_Year
for /f "delims=" %%a in ('wmic.exe Path Win32_LocalTime GET * /value') do (for /f "delims=" %%b in ("%%a") do set DT_%%b)
for %%a in (DT_Month DT_Day DT_Hour DT_Minute DT_Second) do (if !%%a! LSS 10 set %%a=0!%%a!)
set Timestamp=%DT_Year%%DT_Month%%DT_Day%_%DT_Hour%%DT_Minute%
set Target=%TargetRoot%\%Timestamp%
robocopy.exe "%Source%" "%Target%" /e /r:0 /w:0

Currently in test mode for debugging reasons. To run for real, remove the ECHO on line 16.
Adjust Source and TargetRoot values per your needs.

@echo off
setlocal enabledelayedexpansion
REM Copies the newest folder to target.
REM Assumes Source folders have names like:
REM   YYYYMMDDHHMM
REM e.g.
REM   200805032247
REM   201210110353
REM   201610110353

REM Adjust Source and TargetRoot values per your needs

set Source=F:\
set TargetRoot=C:\target
set Timestamp=%DT_Year%%DT_Month%%DT_Day%_%DT_Hour%%DT_Minute%
set Target=%TargetRoot%
for /f "tokens=1*" %%a in ('dir /o-d /b "%Source%"') do (
  ECHO robocopy.exe "%Source%\%%~na" "%Target%\%%~na" /e /r:0 /w:0
  exit /b
)
