Copy and Echo

#1 Post by falcios » 06 Jul 2021 09:02

I copied:
copy c:\users\test\sample.txt" "d:\test"

I get 1 file(s) copied.

I want to see the full path of what it is being copied.

I used echo copy c:\users\test\sample.txt" "d:\test" but when I ran the batch file it showed the full path but did not copy

What command can I use to view the full path when copying?

Thanks in advance.

You can't change the behavior of the copy command. However, with ECHO turned ON you'll see the executed command. And if you don't want to get a visible prompt, update it to the invisible backspace-space-backspace combination using the $H code.

Before copying:

Code: Select all

prompt $h
echo on
After copying:

Code: Select all

@echo off
