I would like to create a batch file to use in Windows 10 Task Scheduler for the purpose of doing a daily backup of spreadsheets from one network drive folder to another network folder. I would like the batch file to include the step of creating a sub-folder in the destination 'CAP Spreadsheet Backups' folder, named with the current date (YYYY - MMM- DD), where the spreadsheets would be backed up to.

I have created the copy action:

Copy "\\\productiongraphics$\XXX Spreadsheets\*.xls*" "\\ncxxx1\xxx_development$\Publishing\XXX\_XXX Spreadsheet Backups\

But I do not know how to add the action to create the sub-folder with the current date to the batch file.

Also, do I need to include an action in the batch file to 'End' the task?
