And when I say help, I mean lots of help.

Essentially, I'd like to be able to use robocopy for backup. The trick is, I'd like to move extra files in the destination to a separate folder. In this way, source and destination would be in sync but no data would be lost through accidental deletion. Having a separate folder for the extras would make restoring from backup easier as you'd be able to start again right where you left off in the event of drive/data loss but you would still retain old files. This would keep the working directories clean and orderly.

Any thoughts on how to move the extras to a new folder? It seems that since robocopy can identify extras, it should be possible to move them or copy somehow.

I would like to be able to run this with task scheduler or as a bat that will shut down the computer when done. I can do all that, I just don't know how to move the extras.


Thanks in advance! And no, I'm not a programmer or student so this is not my homework
