Hi all
This is my problem
I have a lot of .rar files about 800
and i want to make a list of em in notepad, excel or word
So i can then email someone the list
Basically the only way i know how to do this is to copy and paste each 1
Which would take hours
There must be a program or easier way to do this
Anyone have an idea how it can be done
Cheers in advance for any help

Open a command prompt (START > RUN > CMD).

Navigate to the directory where the .rar files are then type this command.

dir *.* > text.txt

You will now have a text file in the same directory with a list of all the files.

Try this then...

dir d:*.* > text.txt

...where d: is the dvd drive.

Note there is no space between the d: and the *.*

i.e. dir_d:*.*_>_text.txt

To navigate, type cd then the directory name.

c:\> cd Movies <return>
c:\Movies> cd Saw <return>
