BAT file to search a mapped directory


I need to create a bat file that will allow a user to enter a name or part of a name and then have it search the mapped drive and open the result.

Is this even possible. I know search would do that, but I am looking for something faster.

Any ideas?
1 Solution
@echo off
set /p filename="Enter name of file: "
set /p drive="Enter Drive (Q:, or Z:) to search for file: "

Rem assume that the user enter filename and drive correctly
cd \
dir /b /s | find "%filename%"
