Batch script to read files created after 5PM

#1 Post by Codesearcher » 09 Mar 2019 05:51

Hi All,
I am looking for a Batch command that can retrieve the files created in a folder after 5PM.

Eg:
List of files created on folder after 5:00:05 PM on a day while I have the date in form of string, how can I write a command to do it?
Pretty new to scripting and this forum.

Please help.

That's by far not enough information. Batch doesn't have any datatime value type. For that reason we have to treat a date and time as string anyway. But in this case the format would be important because unfortunately everything is localized. E.g. the content of the %date% variable could be something like
Sun 03/10/2019 or
2019-03-10 or
10.03.2019

What we don't know is:
a) what format does "I have the date in form of string" mean?
b) what kind of localized string does ~t format specifier of a FOR variable produce
c) "after 5:00:05 PM" until when? (Even though I don't think we would even get seconds.)
