Tried your suggestion JohnC but I have not looked at the link you provided. Thats next.
I can change the Folder with cd C:\Documents and Settings\William\My Documents\myfiles.
I then I do a dir and get a list of files in the ......\myfiles\ folder
I change the command to XCOPY “C:\Documents and Settings\William\My Documents\myfiles” and get the error file not found... file myfiles
I then add to myfiles the wild card *.* thusly .....\myfiles\*.*” and get the error file not found... file *.*
I then add to myfiles password.wpd thusly .....\myfiles\password.wpd” and get the error file not found... file password.wpd
1. The command dir Gives me a list of files in folder myfiles
2. I thought *.* was a wild card. But XCOPY treats it as a file. See above
3. Password.wpd is in fact in the folder \myfiles\ and it shows with the dir command.
At this point I don’t know what the heck is going on. Why does copying a few files have to be so confusing?
