I need a Powershell script which helps me to create a folder on destination with one previous date.

Currently, I am using the code below. It helps me to create a folder on destination place with current date but I need folder with previous date.

$destination = "C:\abc"

Testing if the path Exist or not

md $destination -ErrorAction:SilentlyContinue 

Create a Test folder in destination path (name will be same as Zip file)

$folder = $destination + "\" + (get-date -Format yyyyMMdd) + "." 
$folderName = (get-date -Format yyyyMMdd) + "." md $folder

What does this have to do with gmail? – Ramhound Oct 9 '13 at 14:04
I'm a little confused. You just want to make a folder with the date in it's name? – EBGreen Oct 9 '13 at 14:30
…or have its timestamp be before the current date? – Synetech Oct 9 '13 at 16:00
