Windows 7: Timing an Operation in a Batch File.

Timing an Operation in a Batch File.

I have a simple batch file to copy using xcopy to place a copy of certain files onto an external usb hard disk. I would like to find a way to time how long it takes to complete the copying. Is there a function or something I can can call at the batch file start and record the system clock time and then call again at the end of the batch file right before a pause statement that will allow me to determine how long the operation ran? I guess I am asking if can build a 'stopwatch' into the batch file.

Thank you.

Try adding this command at the start and end of the BAT file:
time /t

See if that gets what you want.
