you'd want to do this in VBscript (VBS)

if you google VBS for cutting/copying/pasting files... there will be tons of stuff.
same goes for creating a folder based on date/time

in task scheduler, you could have a batch file that kicks off your VBS

as long as directory A and directory B are static, it's not too hard.

i have scripts that do these things, but not all of those in one place. send me a private message tomorw around noon EST, i might have something for you to use as a base template
