Computer Q&A Board  /  Reader's Tips  /  writing file list to text file
Posted by: 112 (Guest), April 9th, 2007, 7:36am
   It seems that there was a discussion on this board about how to write the files and folders on a drive to a text file.  I did a search for that post and could not find it.
   Here is one way to do that.  It lists all of the folders and the files in them in a file that can be opened with Notepad.
   To print the contents of the C drive to a file called before.txt in C, go to a Command Prompt (in WinXP go to Start - All Programs - Accessories - Command Prompt) and type this - "dir c:\*.* /s/one >c:\before.txt" (without the quote marks) and press Enter.
