|Part of it may be explained by this:|
Always use the /D parameter with the CD command !
Otherwise, you get this kind of buggy behaviour:
C:\Documents and Settings>cd "d:\temp"
C:\Documents and Settings>dir "d:\temp"
Volume in drive D is Program and Data
Volume Serial Number is C8BE-1EC5
Directory of d:\temp
26/03/2010 15:42 <DIR> .
26/03/2010 15:42 <DIR> ..
0 File(s) 0 bytes
2 Dir(s) 21.314.338.816 bytes free
C:\Documents and Settings>
The CD command is totally ignored, since by coincidence, the active drive was not the same as the targetted drive. As the DIR command shows, the directory exists all right.
