Suppress 1 file(s) copied.

#1 Post by flywire » 18 Jul 2020 03:18

Can I suppress the `1 file(s) copied.` output from a single line command that prepending the output from another program?

Code: Select all

>echo demo > new.txt & copy /y new.txt demo.* & vol >> demo.txt
        1 file(s) copied.
(" echo demo > new.txt &" is only to create file for the demonstration.)

Not sure I got it. So you only want to redirect the output of the copy command to nul in order to get rid of it, right?

Code: Select all

>echo demo > new.txt & (>nul copy /y new.txt demo.*) & vol >> demo.txt

Don't worry, you got it. Much appreciated.

Actual use case starts at "(>nul copy ..."
