The following script will create a folder on the D: drive named as today's date in numeric format, this is great if you need to schedule your PC to run Backups on a specific time of the day and provide you with several versions of My Document folder, you could send them to your Dropbox folder, Mega, etc.


-----> Save the script bellow as MYDocs.bat and run it.


set myDate=%date:~4,2%%date:~7,2%%date:~10%
mkdir h:\%myDate%
robocopy "c:\users\%username%"\Documents\ H:\%myDate% /e /R:1 /v /np /eta /w:2 /PURGE /XD TEMP >c:\users\%username%"\Desktop\MYDocs.txt
