scripting windows

Posted 08 June 2012 - 05:38 PM

I've got a load of stuff that i need to move over to other hard drives. it's a range of files and folders and they are all going different places. normally i would either drag and drop, but the amount of files and the size of them means i either have to wait at least 10/20minutes before beginning my next copy. so i thought i would write a script. trouble is, if i write my script in notepad i don't get code completion, which is pain because these are really long/strange folder names. if i write directly in command line obviously stuck with the same problem as using windows explorer

tl:dr
writing scripts, using the useful tab complete for file names without executing after entering a line

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0
