Adding it to the SendTo menu is a litter brighter then the original person who released an utterly useless application, but neither are impressive.
How about I code a batch file you run as administrator and makes use of the erase command and takes out winsxs? I would find that much more useful.
but .... this is supposed to be a scene site and playing with DOS/CLI commands has nothing to do with the PS3 and is insulting to say the least.
There's 1,000's of batch files for this and that. Google has plenty on listing the contents on dirs *LOL*
Always the Downer there Brakk3n. :P . in the end its good for ppl that dont have or dont know dos/CMD
sure its nothing fancy :P
quite true, ps3 scene is about ps3 scene.. but he is a dev and hes just trying to help, i remember having to look around before i knew how to use a batch for a good standalone program that does this for you.
but yeah, im looking forward to more news
Nice, I used to use CMD all the time for this. I'm going to try it, it looks nice.
@brakk3n - I really wasn't going to get involved b/c I'm busy restoring my PS3 after a completely unnecessary hard drive failure but somebody brought it up to us. You keep using the word "useless" but it's been brought up a couple times that not everybody knows how to use dos commands. I'm from the old school too and have done more than a few bat menus/programs converted to com/exe so I understand it can look simplistic to some people.
Having said that, don't you think it's better to show people a better way rather than to just point out the faults? Obviously he had a need for it and decided to share for others that might have the same need. Last I checked I don't recall your name on anything so do you really think you're qualified to point out the faults of others?
Please don't respond to this. Like I said, I'm busy and will be for a good while restoring my system. I just wanted to ask you to take a step back and relax a little bit. Everybody starts somewhere and it does nobody any good for people to try to squash devs before they hit their stride.
Make one that can read files inside a folder rather than just the folder and files itself. Would be useful then. Like if you open the program in a music directory where all your music is in its own folders by artist, have it read the contents deeper than what's already in the folder. Instead of just song artists, have it also list the sub-directories/files. Know what I'm trying to explain? That's something I've always been looking for personally. I only got my first computer in 2002 and didn't really learn how to utilize DOS and scripts at all. I only know what I look up or find.
@Secludedly - you mean to list all files within all subdirectories?
dir /s /b /one > list.txt
/s = all subdirectories
/b = bare file list view
/one = order by name, then by extension
Leave out the /b if you need file sizes.
edit: type dir /? for a full list of commands. You can also list hidden and system files if you need it
See, now that's a good way to list all the files on my PS3 effortlessly. Thank you. I can only read what's on my HDD when hooked up to PC, but if I'm correct, someone made a DOS application for the PS3, right? A useful program to me would be utilizing a similar script via the DOS application that reads the PS3 directories and sub-directories, saving it to a txt on an external device. I wonder if rewriting a PS3 DOS application to feed this script by button presses is possible, like a "PS3 File List Scraper."
Thanks a lot BahumatLord.
