Is there a Script or batch file that can create folders by date range

Q: Is there a Script or batch file that can create folders by date range

I was wondering if there was a way to create a set of folders in a specific directory according to a date range that i input.


Select start date 2011 10 01

select end date 2012 10 01

Select Output path of c:\users\XXXX\desktop\export data

and it creates a folder for all days from 2011 10 01 through 2012 10 01 and places them in the output path i have set for it.

any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Preferred Solution: Is there a Script or batch file that can create folders by date range

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Is there a Script or batch file that can create folders by date range

Welcome damjohnron to the windows 7 forums.

Here are some snippits of a dos batch file that will create a directory with the datek and tell you if it already exists.

set DATEST=%DATE:~10,4%%DATE:~4,2%%DATE:~7,2%
echo %datest%
rem if it looks ok, then you can press enter to continue
if exist %homepath%\documents\%datest% goto dup1
md %homepath%\documents\%datest%
rem the pause can be taken out if you wish.
go to end
rem you already have done this.

you can change the path statement to the directory you wish.

This batch file can be run each day that you want to create a new sub directory.
There are other ways to do this but a bit more complicated such as reading an external
text file for the directory names.

I am using following batch file for cleaning the desktop and also for taking backup of desktop:

@echo off

set curr_date=%DATE:~10,4%-%DATE:~4,2%-%DATE:~7,2%

mkdir "%USERPROFILE%\My Documents\backup\%curr_date%_backup"

xcopy "%USERPROFILE%\Desktop" "%USERPROFILE%\My Documents\backup\%curr_date%_backup" /D/S/H/V/C/F/K/Y

for /d /r "%USERPROFILE%\Desktop" %%x in (*) do rd /s /q "%%x"
for /r "%USERPROFILE%\Desktop" %%x in (*) do del /f "%%x"

copy "%USERPROFILE%\My Documents\backup\%curr_date%_backup\*.lnk" "%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\"

del /q "%USERPROFILE%\My Documents\backup\%curr_date%_backup\*.lnk"

In the first line I am creating a folder with current date, e.g. curr_date_backup. Second, copying the contents of Desktop to the newly created folder. Third, deleting directories from the desktop. Forth, deleting files from the desktop. fifth, Copy back all the shortcuts to the desktop. sixth, deleting all the shortcuts from Current date folder.

This batch file is working perfectly in Windows XP. It works in win 7 also but the problem is that the name of the current date folder created by first command is "Desktop". when I use command prompt to check the name, the name is correct. I checked the properties of the folder the correct is there also. But in windows the name doesn't match with the expected one.

Hi, i need some help creating a batch file.

What i want it to do is to copy the folder structure of a specific folder, and then move the files and folders to the newly created folders.

As of right now i have this code:


echo on
xcopy "C:\Users\Test\Desktop\Origin\*" C:\Users\Test\Desktop\Destiny /T
move "C:\Users\Test\Desktop\Origin\*" C:\Users\Test\Desktop\Destiny/
Currently it creates the folder structure, but only moves the files in C:\Users\Test\Desktop\Origin\ and not it's subfolders.

Any help would be appreciated

I need to create a batch file to delete folders and the files that are in them. I have an application that is blowing up users profiles, not allowing them to log off until they reduce the profile size. Until I get a resolution from the application support team I need a batch file that I can send them that will delete two folders. Here is what I have to far and it is not working:

@echo off
deltree /y C:\Documents and Settings\SidesRJ\Documentum\ucf
deltree /y C:\Documents and Settings\SidesRJ\Documentum\cta

Any help would be appreciated

A:Create a batch file to delete folders and files

deltree is a DOS/Windows 9x command.
In Windows NT 4 and higher (2000, XP, Vista, 7), you use rd /s (subdirectories)
If you want to do it without prompt you'd use the /q (quiet) flag
if you want to run it on different users' computers (with different usernames) use environment variables
to know what they are, open a command prompt window and type set
to access specific variables, use the % sign
for example in my computer, if you type %temp% in the address bar, it'll take you to that folder.

Is this the only issue?

It's not a problem with batch but with Task Scheduler. Before you can import a task that originated from another computer, data contained in the "UserId" element of the task xml has to be changed to match up with a user that exists on the machine you are importing the task to.

The part in red must be changed to one of the users of the machine you are trying to importing this task to.

Hi,I tend to do the following alot:
Create multiple folders, give them specific names
open the folders, fill them with shortcuts to programs
change the names of the shortcuts
change the icons of the shortcuts

So I am wandering, is it possible to create a script to do the above?

1.) create several folders, give them different names
2.) fill the folders with shortcuts to programs having the correct names and icons

A:script - create folders containing shortcuts to programs

Copy the code below into a text file and rename the .txt extension to .vbs

Just change the "Create Folder Path" (line 2) to reflect where you want the destination folder to be created. Also change the Save Path and Link name in line 4 as well as the Target path of your application in line 5. Save the file and then double click to execute. You will need to refresh your desktop or directory by clicking F5 in order to show the newly created folder. In my example below I copied the file MSConfig.exe to the root of my C: drive and then used the script to create a shortcut to it inside the folder "Test" on my desktop. I'm not sure how to change the icons via code so maybe someone else could help out ??
Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set f = fso.CreateFolder("C:\Documents and Settings\euza116\Desktop\Test")
Set objShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Set objShortCut = objShell.CreateShortcut("C:\Documents and Settings\euza116\Desktop\Test\Your_Link_Name.lnk")
objShortCut.TargetPath = "C:\MSConfig.exe"
objShortCut.Description = "Shortcut_to_ MSConfig"

Here is the same code in VBA Just change the path names to reflect the correct application and save paths. You can add this code to a module within MS Word or Excel or other MS Office Application.
Public Sub CreateDirectory()

Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell"... Read more

I need to know how to create a batch file that will post to an ftp by looking for a file with a specified date. It's a two step process. First, a batch file is run to encrypt, and the output file is KML_06082004.pgp. Then another batch file needs to be run to post a file to a client's ftp site. Currently, what I'm doing is going into the second batch file that posts the file and changing the date every week to the current date in the mmddyyyy format. I've been looking online for a way to run it so I don't have to change the date every week, but all I keep finding is how to encrypt a file with the date as part of the name, and I already know how to do this. This is the code that encrypts the file

Note...Actual names have been changed to protect the innocent.
echo off
set year=%date:~10,4%
set month=%date:~4,2%

A:Date for batch file

Okay, just a thought here (and let me warn you, my DOS is a bit rusty...):

Add a couple of lines to your batch file that instruct it to move the file to a \sent subdirectory when the process is complete (or use copy then delete the file from the original subdirectory). The only file that will ever be in the root directory will be the current one to be sent, so use a wildcard to pick it out and send it (I also believe in putting this stuff in a subdirectory, not directly into root C) :

open ftp.myftp.com
lcd C:\
put KML_*.pgp
move c:\KML_*.pgp c:\ftpSent\*.*

Let me know if this works,

Wondering if anyone in this forum can help me figure out what I am doing wrong with my script. I am grabbing a text file with a list of users in it. I want to then create folders for all those people and then set explicit permissions on those folders to only allow the users and admin access to it. So for the create user folder, I have...

$Users = Get-Content "C:\Users.txt"
ForEach ($user in $users)
$newPath = Join-Path \\mycomputer\Users$ -childpath $user
New-Item $newPath -type directory

This works great as I now have 100 folders created. But how do I use something like....

$acl = Get-Acl "\\mycomputer\users$"
$permission = "mydomain\$users","FullControl","Allow"
$accessRule = New-Object System.Security.AccessControl.FileSystemAccessRule $permission
$acl | Set-Acl \\mycomputer\users$\$user

When I try to loop these together it says the folder already exists or the setaccessrule identity references could not be translated.

Anyone know how I loop it in with creating the folder? Or is there a way to just say...create folder based on this username, then take that username and make it the only admin on the folder along with the system admin??

A:powershell script to create user folders and set permissions

$permission = "mydomain\$user","FullControl","Allow"
$accessRule = New-Object System.Security.AccessControl.FileSystemAccessRule $permission
$acl | Set-Acl $newpath

Anyone know how I would then look at an old server with user folders and do a stare and compare between the old and the new ones I just created? And once I find a folder that matches I want to grab all the contents in the old server and robocopy it over to the new server.

Backround: I am a college student majoring in Information Technology with a focus in programming. I also work for my school's IT department as an IT associate. I have 4 years of experience dealing with hardware and software and have studied Net+ and A+ certification books.

Problem: At my school my boss, the IT Director, wants to schedule a batch file to run weekly that will delete items from the desktop and folders of the "Student" account on all of the student computers. He asked us associates to go around to every student computer with this batch file on a thumb drive and schedule the task. Seems simple enough right? The problem is we are talking upwards of 300 computers throughout the campus. I proposed a solution to him where we would use a script that would essentially consult a text document with the names of all of the student computers in it, then run the file.

I am 99% this can be done, I just have a very small amount of programming experience. If anyone has an answer or knows of an easier way to accomplish this I appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

At work i use 2 different PDF viewing software. One is Adobe for editing and the other is Foxit for quick viewing. They have their pros and cons and so I use them interchangeably.

For some work I will use Foxit for several hours at a time and only open something in Adobe on an as needed basis using the right click "open with" context. The opposite is true, for some work I use Adobe for hours and then use Foxit as needed with "open with" context.

I want a registry file or some application that will enable me to simply double click on it and KNOW that my file association for PDF is now Foxit (or Adobe depending on what batch or registry file I double click on).

I see there is "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ Explorer\FileExts\.pdf" which changes when I edit the file association in control panel. It does update, but I can't manually change the "UserChoice" Progid item. It changes only through file association in control panel.

I realize there are some in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT but they dont update when i update it in file association in Control panel.

I don't know what to do or where else to look. It is tedious to have to go to the control panel -> file association manually.

Can someone help?

A:PDF file association REG or Batch Script

As for Foxit file association, that is easy.
"PathTo\Foxit Reader.exe" -Register
should do the trick.

But with Adobe Reader that is more complicated.
You can run repair function of it's MSI package with parameters /fum (f -to allow further parameters, u - rewrites user specific registry entries, m - rewrites other registry entries).

Or you can use registry monitoring software (some even in trial mode) like Total Uninstall to see what values are changed when you switch between Abode and Foxit. Once you will get these changes you can create two reg files for both cases. Or just one for Adobe and use code above for Foxit

Assume I have a csv file (eg config.csv) set out as follows:


I would like to be able to pass a batch script a parameter that uniquely identifies a line (record) in the csv file, eg:

script.cmd 2

and have the script then:

- read the line of the csv file that corresponds to the parameter given (ie 2,ghi,jkl) and
- set variables by parsing this line, eg:

set B=ghi
set C=jkl

I am very new to any form of coding, including batch scripting. I've read the help on FOR statements and searched the net and this forum but am hoping someone might be able to point me in the right direction, help me get started or provide a solution.

For starters i would like to apologize about my bad English, i don't use it that frequently so might have a hard time to express myself good enough for you to understand what im trying to do.

I have a .csv file where A1 and B1 will be having constant values, the values are A1 = Name B1 = Order number.

Im trying to figure out if a script could help me to populate the cells beneath A1 and B1?

If it could ask me for name: and then i would have to type in a name that would populate A2, A3, etc. Perhaps it could also ask me for the amount? so if i put in the name "Adapter" and then it asks me for amount where i type in 10 it would put the word "Adapter" in A2-A11

I would also like it to ask me for an order number that would be put into A2-A11 in this case.

The amount that i would like to put in will vary from time to time.

IThis is what i would like the CSV file to look like after inserting the name "Adapter TKS-B" and the amount: 29 along with the order number: 123456. Hopefully you will understand how i want to populate the .csv file.

Is this possible? Again im terribly sorry for my bad English.

Thanks in advance

So I have folders full of tv shows and a program that gives them all matching thumbnails but it saves them as .tbn files and my media server wants .jpg. So i wrote this script to run from my vidoes folder which contains all my tv shows.

@for /r %%i in (*.tbn) do ren "%%~fi" "%%~ni.jpg"
But now I am using xbmc as well and it looks for many thumbnails as .tbn so I want to change the script to rename any .tbn that is not named season00.tbn (00 being any two digits). If anyone could help me code this it would be much appreciated I tried for hours cause I know it should be a very simple if statement added in there but everything I try either stops renaming anything or still renames everything.

Welcome to TSG!

Use "X:\Backup Folder\Movie Library\backup%date%" as the destination folder name in your batch file. The %date% variable will be expanded with today's date

Hi. I need help creating a .bat file that compares 2 same file on 2 different computers (server and client) on a LAN network..
It compares the same file on a server cpu, and there are 4 possible conditions i think:
- Same date on server > then do no action
- Older date on server> no action
- Newer date on server> action, sync using goodsync command line (i'll work on this)
- Connection with the server down > no action
So it's like this :
abc.txt on client 11/01/12
abc.txt on server 12/01/12

then sync

My question is, how exactly do i compare file on a LAN network?

A:Need help creating a batch file based on last modified date..

Welcome to TSG denywinarto. Hope you find some help here and take the opportunity to help others!

I quit doing Batch files a while back an went to vbs because it seems more robust. That said there is a vbs script in this thread (post #3) that you point at a directory and it makes a text file of file information including modified date and the full path to the file.

If you run this against your two folders (producing the two text file) then write a process that compares the two files and moves data according to your desires. You can do the file move and compare in vbs and not have to worry about the goodysnc piece.

Just wondering if anyone could help me create this batch file. Have been trying for a while and is starting to really frustrate me. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

? Create a batch file called myBackup.bat.
? It will backup all contents of a folder called 'files' to a folder called 'filesBackup'.
? If 'filesBackup' doesn't exist, it should create it.
? If 'filesBackup' is empty it should copy all files including subdirectories.
? If 'filesBackup' is not empty it should copy only newer files, without prompting.
? Don't use absolute paths, only relative folder names.
? You will need to use command line help to find the best command to use and what parameters to use. Copy command won't work, you will need a command that does eXtra.
? Paste the text of the batch file as well as a screen shot into your document.

Is this for a school assignment?

Why do you want to use relative directory? Why not use env variables?

I want to copy files from a folder to another folder named with system date. Actually, I want to such a batch file which gets executed when I click a button on desktop and complete the above task. Also, once created can I edit it, because opening .bat file tells that it is not a valid win32 file.
