batch help needed plz
i had a topic like this earlr plz don't flame me! can any one help me with this code?
@ echo off
del C:\"WINDOWS\Desktop\New Folder"\Y

it should say:
del c:\windows\desktop\new folder /y
and you should have put this in the same post as before.
thats to delete a folder called 'new folder' on your dekstop, with '/y' means it will answer yes to any questions, like are you sure you want to delete read-only file "xxx.aaa"

You can't "del" a directory, you must remove it using rmdir, or possibly deltree if there are contents to the directory. Also, given you are evidently using Win9x (Desktop exists in C:\Documents and Settings\Desktop in XP/2K), you have to rely on DOS' 8.3 file naming convention.
rmdir c:\windows\desktop\newfol~1 /y

Yeah, you can't "del" a directory, you should try to use "deltree" for directory and del for "files"
for example like this
deltree c:\windows\desktop\newfol~1 /y (dos can read only 8 digits, whenever got spacing ot more characters will turn ~)
del c:\windows\desktop\file.exe ( is for deleting files not folder, and you don't have to /y cause it don't ask u)

thanks for all yo help could you plz tell (if possable) how i can make btach make a new btach with a command and save it in a like C:\windows

If I understand correctly, you want a batch-file that makes another batch-file and possible places content in it?
test.bat now makes a test2.bat in c:\windows and places the cls command in that batch-file.
echo cls > c:\windows\test2.bat
You could put whatever you want in test2.bat using test.bat.

That's what my "code" does... it makes a separate batch file... the commands you want in there are for you to figure out...
