if ((gsnp Microsoft.SharePoint.Powershell -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue) -eq $null){
    asnp Microsoft.SharePoint.Powershell

function Get-ScriptDirectory
 $Invocation = (Get-Variable MyInvocation -Scope 1).Value
 Split-Path $Invocation.MyCommand.Path

$currentPhysicalPath = Get-ScriptDirectory

$logfile=$currentPhysicalPath + "\log.log"

Start-Transcript $logfile

#$backupLocation = "\\WIN-K6KO9R0T2LC\C$\Backup"
#$backupFolder = $BackupLocation + "Backup"

if ((Test-Path $BackupLocation) -ne $True)
    New-Item $BackupLocation -type directory
    write-host “Successfully created folder!” -ForegroundColor Green

    write-host “Folder already exits” -ForegroundColor Blue

#Get current date
#$currentDate = (get-date).tostring("mm_dd_yyyy-hh_mm_s")
$currentDate = Get-Date -format MM-dd-yyyy
if($currentDate -ne $null)
    $newFolder = $BackupLocation + $currentDate
    if ((Test-Path $newFolder) -ne $True)
        New-Item $newFolder -type directory
        write-host “Successfully created backup folder-” $newFolder -ForegroundColor Green
    if($newFolder -ne $null)
        $removeBackupFolder = $newFolder + "\*"
        Remove-Item $removeBackupFolder -Recurse

        Copy-Item $DestinationLocation -Destination $newFolder -Recurse
        write-host “Successfully copied files to backup folder-” $newFolder -ForegroundColor Green

        $removeFolder = $DestinationLocation + "*"
        Remove-Item $removeFolder -Recurse
        write-host “Successfully removed files from folder--” $DestinationLocation -ForegroundColor Green

        #copy files from source location to destination
        $sLocation = $currentPhysicalPath + "\webapp.com\*"
        Copy-Item $sLocation -Destination $DestinationLocation -Recurse
        write-host “Successfully copied files & folders to -” $DestinationLocation -ForegroundColor Green

Echo Finish

Step2: Create batch file to run the script. Save file in .bat format.

cd /d %~dp0
powershell -file  ./psCopyFiles.ps1 -DestinationLocation "\\WIN-K6KO9R0T2LC\C$\ecwebapp.com\" -BackupLocation "\\WIN-K6KO9R0T2LC\C$\Backup\"
