Loop is deleting the Input file

Specs: Windows 7
This is my first batch script , and parts of them are working :-).

Please help to let me know where I am doing it wrong.

:: begin batch script
@echo off & setlocal
cd F:\BTR
set f=
set /p f=< List.txt
if not defined f (
echo " All files Processed" > Complete.txt
goto :eof
CALL F:\ICR\cdr.bat %f% -Wait
IF %ERRORLEVEL% NEQ 0 ( exit /b 1 )
find /v "%f%"<List.txt>temp
move /y temp List.txt
::========= end batch

I have a list.txt file from which I take the name and pass it to the below commad as %f%

CALL F:\ICR\cdr.bat %f% -Wait

so if the List.txt has 10 files, the command will take each file and put in in the place of %f% and run the call command 10 times

and after the command is executed successfully, I am trying to remove the file which is processed from List.txt and if all the files are processed, I am generating a dummy file to notify me that List.txt process is complete and the .bat is successfully executed.

The problem is the loop logic is not working as I expected, and the list.txt is getting empty.

can any one please let me know what is wrong in my script.

The below does not remove anything from any file&exits on error:

@echo off&setlocal enabledelayedexpansion
pushd F:\BTR
for /f %%a in (list.txt) do (
echo processing %%a...
call F:\ICR\cdr.bat %%a
if not !errorlevel!==0 exit/b
echo Finished without error^^!
