adding date into a file name
| 7:36 am on Jul 23, 2007 (gmt 0)|
i am wondering if it is possible to add a date or timestamp into a file name using the command line?
i am using this
REN C:\news_full_night.mp3 news_full_night_%DATE%.mp3
but its not working because obviously / are not valid characters.

There are quite a few solutions to be found with a search of the keywords DOS, rename & date [google.com].

thank you that was exactly what I needed, if I only knew what words to search for some times...thanks again!
ren test.txt %date:~10%-%date:~4,2%-%date:~7,2%_test.txt
