How to copy last but one modified file using batch file/powershell?
For example I have 4 folders and I want to copy only Last but one modified folder. Is there a way to copy only one folder instead of all the folders? Currently I using batch file to copy paste last modified file as shown below:
FOR /F "delims=" %%i IN ('dir "Sourcedir"/b /ad-h /t:c /od') DO SET a=%%i echo Most recent subfolder: %a% pause xcopy "Destinationdir" "Sourcedir\%a%\" /o /x /e /h /k
try like this:
@echo off setlocal enableDelayedExpansion FOR /F "delims=" %%i IN ('dir "." /b /ad-h /t:c /od') DO ( set "prev=!last!" set "last=%%i" ) echo %prev%
You may wish to try something along these lines:
@Echo Off Set "Directory=" For /F "Skip=1 Delims=" %%A In ('Dir /B /AD /O-D /TW "Sourcedir"' ) Do Set "Directory=%%A" & GoTo :CopyIt :CopyIt If Defined Directory XCopy "SourceDir\%Directory%" "DestinationDir\" /E /H /X /Y
