Thread: Check My Dos

  1. #1
    I have a file I want to move from a floppy to the windows folder on my hard drive. I am really outta practice with DOS, not that I was ever that great with it. Is this the correct procedure?

    COPY A:IFSHLP.SYS C:WINDOWS

    looks right, although u may have to go to the a drive first by typing A:/
    then type copy ifhelp.sys C:/windows/

    you go it right, just make sure you use the backslashes like

    copy a:\IFSHLP.SYS C:\WINDOWS

    a:\ and c:\

    OK

    No need to go to a: first because you are stating where to copy from to begin with.

    he does not have to be at the A:\ prompt.

    if you type copy a:\name.xxx to c:\name it will do it no matter what drive letter you are at, because you are telling it exactly where to get the file from and where to send it, that is what the a:\ is doing

    EDIT: boy you are fast haxor41789

    I haven't used DOS in around 8 years... and the last time I bothered to go into bash was when I was installing SuSE...
