modify batch file

October 24, 2011 at 10:58:34
Specs: Windows 7
I have a batch file that I need to modify. It currently lists a number of file types and their locations - how would I add the file size to the following?

@echo off
if exist C:\Users\Administrator.domain\Desktop\kresults.txt del /q C:\Users\Administrator.domain\Desktop\kresults.txt
FOR %%G IN (
) DO (
echo Searching for %%G
dir D:\ROAMING\*.* /L /A /B /S|Find "%%G" >> C:\Users\Administrator.domain\Desktop\kresults.txt
If not exist C:\Users\Administrator.domain\Desktop\kresults.txt echo "Files not found" >> C:\Users\Administrator.domain\Desktop\kresults.txt
start notepad C:\Users\Administrator.domain\Desktop\kresults.txt

The /B in the statement:

dir D:\ROAMING\*.* /L /A /B /S|Find "%%G" >>

means bare... meaning it strips away all the other file info other than the name. If you remove the /B from that statement like this:

dir D:\ROAMING\*.* /L /A /S|Find "%%G" >>

You will see all of the other file info. If you only want file size, then this will show you more than what you want, and changing it would take a few extra steps.

I am getting great size information with this removal of the BARE command; one thing does seem to be missing is the file path - am I missing something?

Can you send me an example of what you are seeing, and an example of what you would like to see?

Hmmm... this seems to be a catch 22 for your situation. If you use /b without /s, or /s without /b you won't see the full path. I'm sure there is a way to do it though. Let me think about it and I'll see what I can come up with.

Know what I like about the original solution? would be caught, while Rockin.Tunes.MP3 would not. Just throwing that out there.

EDIT: Untested, but far more compact:

set outFile=C:\Users\Administrator.domain\Desktop\kresults.txt
echo "Files not found" > %outFile%
(FOR /R "D:\ROAMING" %%G IN (*.jpg *.tif *.bmp *.png *.mp3 *.mp4 *.mov
) DO @echo %%~fG %%~zG) > %outFile%
notepad %outFile%
