    I always found myself creating the same set of folders for my case work.  This kept everything nice and organized for my case data.  I got tired of doing it manually, so I created a batch file.  I thought others might find this useful.

    You essentially copy of the following code into notepad and save with a bat file extension.  When you run it, it creates a series of folders.


    mkdir %date:~-4,4%%date:~-10,2%"-"%date:~7,2%" NEW CASE"

    mkdir %date:~-4,4%%date:~-10,2%"-"%date:~7,2%" NEW CASE"\EVIDENCE

    mkdir %date:~-4,4%%date:~-10,2%"-"%date:~7,2%" NEW CASE"\EXPORT

    mkdir %date:~-4,4%%date:~-10,2%"-"%date:~7,2%" NEW CASE"\PROCESS

    mkdir %date:~-4,4%%date:~-10,2%"-"%date:~7,2%" NEW CASE"\SETTING

    mkdir %date:~-4,4%%date:~-10,2%"-"%date:~7,2%" NEW CASE"\REPORTS

    mkdir %date:~-4,4%%date:~-10,2%"-"%date:~7,2%" NEW CASE"\NOTES
