    I have a batch program which does rar compression of .bak files and deletes the .bak file.
    Here is the program:

    @echo off
    rar a -ag-MMM-YY -m5 ICTS_DataSpring_V3.rar *.dmp
    del *.dmp
    forfiles /d -1 /p "." /m ICTS*.rar /c "cmd /c del @FILE"

    It is not compressing the files.

    Please help.

    Welcome to TSG!

    The code you posted will compress then delete *.dmp, not *.bak files.
    Forfiles.exe is not included with WinXP, so I'm assuming you've installed a copy from someplace, or that line will fail.
