I used to work with desktopOK to save my desktop icons and their location when running windows 7.
DesktopOK does not work very well with windows 10. Also, I was told that it became a dangerous invader.
So I wrote the following bat file to save the desktop icons. (my desktop is in directory y:)

@Echo on
xcopy y:\desktop y:\icons %date:~4,2%%date:~7,2%%date:~10,4% /C /E /H /I /J /K /O /R /X
break
@Echo icons saved
break

It does not solve my need because it does not save the icons' location, just a copy of the desktop.
In addition, instead of creating a file called icons+date as I wanted, it creates a second file also called desktop in the Y: directory. It is a mess having those two files side by side both called desktop. Windows gets crazy.
So my first question is: what is wrong with my bat file? Secondly? Is there a way to add icon location?
Thanks Jacob
