I posted this a few weeks ago.  I use a bat file that contains:

        FOR /F "TOKENS=2-4 DELIMS=/ " %%F IN ('DATE /T') DO (SET
        net stop cvs
        xcopy "D:\Data Files\CVS\cvsrepo" "D:\Data Files\CVS\cvsbackup" /Q
/S /C /H /R /O /Y /I
        net start cvs
        ren "cvsbackup" "cvsbackup %MYDATE%"

I end up with a folder named "cvsbackup 05-23-2003", for example.  If you
want to reformat the date, %%F = month, %%G = day, and %%H = year.  Just
move them around for the date format you want.

Hi everybody,
This question not much cvs related. I created a back up copy for cvs repos
and ftp that copy from NT machine using .bat file. However, I need to
concatenate the sysdate to the file name so it won't be overwritten when I
import the next back up copy.
Anyone know how to rename the file in the .bat file and attache the sysdate
to it.
For example:
rename cvsbkup cvsbkup_sysdate

Do you Yahoo!?
