    Cool How To Make A List Of All Your Files Quickly.

    Follow us on Social Media

    Had a few quiries about how to create a list of many Directories/files, quickly (Mp3's especially) without spending hours typing. if you are going to post alot of mp3 songs

    DOS command:

    "DIR > myfile.txt" - Takes the output of dir and re-routes it to the file myfile.txt instead of outputting it to the screen.


    "DIR /s > list1.txt" - /S Displays files in specified directory and all subdirectories.

    Other switches:

    DIR [drive[path][filename] [/A[[attributes]] [/b] [/C] [/D] [/L] [/N]
    [/O[[sortorder]] [/P] [/Q] [/S] [/T[[timefield]] [/W] [/X] [/4]

    Specifies drive, directory, and/or files to list.

    /A Displays files with specified attributes.
    D Directories
    R Read-only files
    H Hidden files
    A Files ready for archiving
    S System files
    - Prefix option with this, meaning do not include

    /B Uses bare format (no heading information or summary).
    /C Display the thousand separator in file sizes.
    This is the default. Use /-C to disable display of separator.
    /D Same as wide but files are list sorted by column.
    /L Uses lowercase.
    /N New long list format where filenames are on the far right.
    /O List by files in sorted order.
    N By name (alphabetic)
    S By size (smallest first)
    E By extension (alphabetic)
    D By date/time (oldest first)
    G Group directories first (add the- Prefix to reverse order)

    /P Pauses after each screenful of information.
    /Q Display the owner of the file.
    /S Displays files in specified directory and all subdirectories.
    /T Controls which time field displayed or used for sorting
    C Creation
    A Last Access
    W Last Written

    /W Uses wide list format.
    /X This displays the short names generated for non-8dot3 file
    names. The format is that of /N with the short name inserted
    before the long name. If no short name is present, blanks are
    displayed in its place.

    /4 Displays four-digit years

    Switches may be preset in the DIRCMD environment variable. Override
    preset switches by prefixing any switch with - (hyphen)--for example, /-W.
    To get PC DOS prompt in WinXP ...
