  • Rename the file on D: before copying the current file to that drive.

  • Hallo,

    Here is the code:

    option explicit

    Dim fileSystem, Fso, mydate
    mydate = date
    Set Fso = WScript.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    Fso.CopyFile "d:\test\RAJA.txt", "d:\test\RAJA"&mydate&".txt"

    Set fileSystem = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

    filesystem.CopyFile "c:\test\raja.txt", "d:\test\"

    WScript.Echo "done"

     Regards, Azzim
