Re: Help with copying file to \sub\subdirectory

You're right, that folder doesn't exist. That was the cause.

Re: Help with copying file to \sub\subdirectory

Thanks Yury! I had to modify it to the following to get it to work properly. Your version immediately closed the command prompt without creating the subfolder or copying the TXT file... @echo off pushd "d:\files" for /f "delims=" %%a in ('dir/ad/b') do ( xcopy/y "*.txt"...

Need help with appending multiple dir commands

I've got this batch file which grabs a list from all subdirectories and then opens that list in TedNotepad. What I can't figure out is how to filter multiple wildcards.. each new line overwrites the previous so only the last one shows up. This is what I works: @echo off dir /b /s "output*-*-*.r...

Help with moving filetype recursively

I've got a top level folder with many subfolders. Inside each of those subfolders are several .bak files. How do I go about running a batch script from the top level folder, which will find all .bak files in each subfolder and then move those .bak files into a "backup" subfolder inside eac...

Re: Batch file to rename while copying to subdir

Hmm, yes it would be safest if it only looked in top-level folders, i.e. toplevel\ (script is run here) toplevel\sublevel\ (images copied from here) toplevel\sublevel\subsublevel\ (images ignored here) Your second suggestion is a good one. The chances that two images with different extensions would ...

Batch file to rename while copying to subdir

I've got a batch file which was created with help from forum members here a while ago. The script travels recursively from a top level folder, and in each subfolder it finds files with specific extensions and copies them to a subdirectory called 'rsrc'. What I'm trying to do now is make this script ...

Re: Help w/ batch file to output dir listings in subdirector

Very nice, thanks for that. It works great! I wonder, is there any way to eliminate the 'higher' level directories from what is recorded in the output file? For example, if the batch is run from: e:\Archive\Images\January\ and it's recording the following path, as an example: e:\Archive\Images\Janua...

Need help with opening text file in custom app

I've got part of a batch file I'm trying to use to do 2 things, the first is to grab a recursive directory listing of specific files in a folder structure, and the second is to open the resulting text file in a specific text editor. The problem I'm having is the path of the text file isn't being rec...
