Is Powershell acceptable? That is really the modern scripting engine for Windows Vista and up... – AthomSfere Apr 2 '13 at 11:11

FORFILES and ROBOCOPY allow a selection of files depending on the date with day accuracy. You have to specify the interval with a min and a max parameter.

This related blog entry might be helpful. It explains how to use FORFILES for copying files of the same day.

To my knowing there's no way of doing that only using xcopy. It takes only date, not time, as an argument.

Xcopy is a windows program, so you might want to ask this question at for example instead to get help with an alternative solution.
