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 MYDATE=%%F-%%G-%%H) 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. -- Dave "stirkus ersu venete" "Mac" <pragcvs at yahoo.com> wrote in message news:mailman.4.1054840182.23685.cvsnt at cvsnt.org... 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 Thanks. --------------------------------- Do you Yahoo!?
