Hello,
I need a batch file to get the current date and time of my computer and put it in a text file every time I run it.But I need the most current date&time to replace the previous within the same text file, so that my file can have only one record, even if I run it multiple times.
I found this code:
echo %date% %time% >> log.txt

But this one just adds the next date under the previous one.
Your help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Hi,

Remove one of the '>' and you have solved it.

It should look like this:
echo %date% %time% > log.txt

REM - Create Date and Time strings
set Today=%date:~10,4%%date:~4,2%%date:~7,2%
set Now=%time:~0,2%%time:~3,2%%time:~6,2%
