Creating A List
OP: January 05, 2008, 10:45:15 PM Last Edit: April 17, 2008, 01:46:12 PM by binklespup
An easy way to compile a list of folders in a particular directory (in this case My Music)

I use this:

Everyone seems to agree this is a great app for making a list of your files and has requested a sticky.

Dead link.

Heres a new one,

Here is a presently working link. The snapfiles, author's page and mediafire links appear to be dead.

Simple batch file:

http://fora.demonoid.com/index.php?topic=35616.msg211326#msg211326

It's quite easy to make a batch (.bat) file, a dos command, to make listing of contents of directory

Copy this exactly into notepad

dir /b /o:en > dir.txt

then save it as a .bat file with a name like say: filelisting.bat

Now place this file in the folder you wish to make listing of and double click it and you will see a new file made called dir.txt - that is the listing of all files in that folder.

Keep a copy in your backup folder so you've always got it

This works for XP, if it doesn't work for Vista, upgrade to XP  ;D

And how do I go about excluding the batch file and its output from being listed as well?

What do you mean by "creating a list of folders" ?

You don't (possibly can't)

So just delete the text relating to the batch file afterwards.

it's really simple to do this stuff.. I used to use the old print command and output to a text file.. it was how we made lists of contents for floppy labels.
