|I changed it to .\*,txt but it still doesn't work|
I tried what you said but I only get access denied error.
On an iteration in a sub directory it does (new folder is a sub directory):
find "string" C:\Users\Playthius\Desktop\Descriptions\New Folder\test.txt .\*.txt 1>results.txt
But it still says file not found even thought it's there and contains "string"
Is the find syntax wrong?
