Using that, the following are examples of all four combinations. Note that this operator, which appends the content to the file, still works to create the file if it doesn't exist. rmdir G:\laptop_backup\backup3 /s /q rename G:\laptop_backup\backup2 backup3 rename G:\laptop_backup\backup1 backup2 rename G:\laptop_backup\backup backup1 mkdir G:\laptop_backup\backup mkdir G:\laptop_backup\backup\firefox echo Backing up files... Thnx Josh.

And what would also greatly simplify things is if there is a way to just use a variable with that os check you have so that it just uses the variable You say this is run under WinXP and Vista, but the paths shown are Vista paths .

DIR>filename.txt and DIR>filename.txt are identical, ECHOHelloworld>filename.txt and ECHOHelloworld>filename.txt are not, even though they are both valid. So i figure i can capture the stdin,stdout, and stderr command of each and after each command add a type command to combine the error file with the main log.

So for example, this: @echo off > filename_prefix-%DATE:~-4%-%DATE:~4,2%-%DATE:~7,2%_%time:~0,2%%time:~3,2%%time:~6,2%.log ( echo Your Name Here echo Beginning Date/Time: %DATE:~-4%-%DATE:~4,2%-%DATE:~7,2%_%time:~0,2%%time:~3,2%%time:~6,2%.log REM do some stuff here echo Your Name Here echo Ending Date/Time: %DATE:~-4%-%DATE:~4,2%-%DATE:~7,2%_%time:~0,2%%time:~3,2%%time:~6,2%.log ) I stopped working on the code last night because as you said it was making me a little crazy and i just had to step away from it for a bit To prevent this ambiguity, either use parentheses or insert an extra space yourself: ECHO Hello World2 >file.txt
(ECHO Hello World2)>file.txt "Merging" Standard Output and Standard Error with 2>&1 can also

Since you are copying firefox separately I'm guessing that's how it's setup. And no insult intended by the simplistic response. It's just important where you place it; the redirection must occur before the pipe. eg echo Hello World > hi.txt Will result in a file called hi.txt containing the string "Hello World" echo How are you >> hi.txt Will add the line "How are you"

This could be useful when prompting for input even if the batch file's output is being redirected to a file. this content Right now for that when i first set up a pc, i set up outlook then image it. You can do it in a batch file, but you have to capture the error, read it back in, then output to the screen and then to the log file. As far as i understand outlook, pretty much everything is saved in there although i never saw account settings anywhere, gotta look for a way to output a file of that

It is not ok to use spaces in >> or 2> or 2>&1 or 1>&2 (before or after is ok). I hope you found this information useful.

I think the best approach would be to add error checking to the commands.

Or make sure the exclude file covers everything, even hidden folders. If you want to APPEND the output, use >> instead of >. > will start a new logfile. My Log file is supposed to hold several 1000 lines of data. What i have a problem with is that i have an xcopy line to backup files.
