Hi is it possible to move files from One folder to another Using Robocopy ,
I want to move only Rpt files  without overwriting if there exists  File with same name,  Also files from all subfolders in the directory also shoud moved.

I have done so far Below.

@echo off
    setlocal enableextensions enabledelayedexpansion

    rem configure directories
    set "source=E:\Source /S"
    set "target=E:\Destination"

    rem move non existing files to target
    call :doMove    

    rem if we still have files
    if exist "%source%\*.rpt" (

        rem generate a timestamp
        set timestamp=_%date:/=%_%time::=%
        set timestamp=!timestamp:,=!

        rem rename the remaining files with timestamp
        ren "%source%\*.rpt" "*.!timestamp!.rpt"

        rem and move the remainig files to target
        call :doMove
    )

    endlocal
    exit /b

:doMove
    robocopy "%source%" "%target%" "*.rpt" /fp /njh /njs /ndl /xc /xn /xo /xx /mov
    goto :EOF


Result
-----------
It moves all file from the path, But it does nt move files from the subfolders inside the path.
Please help me.

This looks strange....
set "source=E:\Source /S"

shouldn't it be
set "source=E:\Source"

and /S is the robocopy subfolders switch?

robocopy "%source%" "%target%" "*.rpt" /fp /njh /njs /ndl /xc /xn /xo /xx /mov /S
