Using DatePorM.bat, I have scripted FilesChangedYesterday.bat to generate a .txt file of file names that were created or modified yesterday.

The syntax for using FilesChangedYesterday.bat is:

FilesChangedYesterday Drive: ReportFolder \[/A\]

Where Drive: is the drive letter (or folder path) you want enumerated, ReportFolder is the folder path that will contain a YYYYMMDD.txt file with the files that were changed yesterday, and /A is an optional parameter that will only find yesterday's files if their archive bit is set.

NOTE: FilesChangedYesterday.bat assumes a MM/DD/YYYY date format, but you can easily change that by altering the set report="%report%\%yesterday:~6,4%%yesterday:~0,2%%yesterday:~3,2%.txt" line.

FilesChangedYesterday.bat contains:
