Hey,

I would need to make a batch file that searches the computer for all file extensions that matches the mask that the user provide's(*pdf,*doc,...)
Also i would like to see exactly how many files the computer has found.
and finally an option to show all the paths on screen(with only the paths and filename) or in an .txt file.

I've just started looking into batch files and this would really help me alot.
Thanks alot

I made a How-To on recursive file search some time ago

This already performs the tasks you want, but can be modified to be a little faster and easier to use.

Don't worry if plan A fails, there are 25 more letters in the alphabet ;)
