one of our group dumps daily report files under new folder created each day in yyyymmdd format on shared drive



I need robocopy script to be created to copy only latest date folder and its files from above source to destination share drive below


\\<Server2>\all reports\report

Daily expected result should be (copying yesterday's folder only to destination)

on April 02, 2016

\\<Server2>\all reports\report\20160401

on April 03, 2016

\\<Server2>\all reports\report\20160402

on April 04, 2016

\\<Server2>\all reports\report\20160403

Have tried below robocopy script and i know there must be a some date logic to be included, instead of picking yesterday's folder only it copies all folders.

robocopy "\\<Server1>\temp" "\\<Server2>\all reports\report" /S
