Batch File search

I want to write a batch file which will search my entire C:\ including subfolders and return me all the file names, their location and the size as a comma seperated output.

You may have more luck looking into scripts for this, because batch files may be a little too primative.  I don't have too much experience with script writing, but the command "dir >> filename.txt" will save the output of your directory as a txt file (though it is not comma seperated, it may be helpful).

Why do you need them to be comma separated?

the following code will output all the file names, including full path, one file name per line with no other text.

the file filename.txt will be in the root of the C drive.

I'll get working on how to make them coma separated. Do you mean all on one line with commas separating or each on its own line with a comma at the end of each line?
cd c:
cd \
 
dir /s /b >> filename.txt
 
 
pause
