How do I create a file/directory with the current date?


Please view my Notices page before viewing this area, it is not complete!
This is work in progress.


Because this was such a popular request I wrote a freeware utility to do it, I believe others are available but since this is my web site I reserve the right to plug my own software :-). It's called DATE2FD and is available from the My Software area, in the command line section. To see what it can do and how to use it you'll have to download it and read the readme.txt file (it's about 12KB (ZIP)).

If you want a batch file solution to the problem then a good place to search is Batfiles. In the FAQ's area of the site you will find out how to get the time and date into variables.


Trawled this site and still can't find the solution to your problem?
If so I highly recommend The DOS Board.
It has several good techies waiting to answer your questions and I hang around there a lot too.
