I need to export a list of filenames and associated information (Date Created, Date Modified and Filesize) from a directory.

I need the information exported into a .txt file, etc. so I can then perform analysis on them (e.g. I need to compare the list of files (about 1,000 files) to another list to see where any discrepancies are).  I'll use something simple like Excel for the comparison, so any output (e.g. .txt) will suffice.

I found a DOS command on the web a few weeks ago to do this, but didn't write it down or save it.  I can't seem to find it any longer.

Any suggestions?
