Hi,

I am looking for a commandline utility (preferably one inbuilt into Windows) that will list me every object within a directory, and the full path to that object. For example, in C:\Stuff:

C:\Stuff\obj1.xxx
C:\Stuff\obj2.xxx
C:\Stuff\onj3.xxx
C:\Stuff\dir1\obj1.xxx
C:\Stuff\dir1\obj2.xxx
C:\Stuff\dir2\obj1.xxx

Etc.

I need it to have no garbage, simply every single object and the full paths to each object within a given directory.

Cheers

Sure, at a command line just do:

DIR /B C:\TEMP

tolist all files in the C:\TEMP folder.  If you want to drill down into subfolders too then do:

DIR /S /B C:\TEMP
