Sorry if this is posted in the wrong section, but i couldn't get help anywhere else.
Ok so i'm trying to dummy a couple of files. I looked around and saw the following tutorial:
Once you have located the files, create a new folder on your desktop. Then open up note pad and copy the following text into it.
IF NOT EXIST DUMMY mkdir DUMMY
FOR %%A IN (*) DO TYPE > DUMMY%%A
Save this file as dummy.bat in the new folder on your desktop. The file should show up as a batch file rather than a text document. Copy and past all of the files into the new folder and double click on the dummy.bat. This should now create a new folder called dummy. Enter this folder and you should find copys of all the files, but if you check they are 0kb.
My understanding is that what it should do is create 0kb files with the EXACT same names as the originals, and place them INSIDE the DUMMY folder.
However, what i end up with is:
DUMMY (empty folder)
Because of this i have to rename each one of the dummy files to remove the "DUMMY" prefix. Quite a pain when I am dummying large amounts of files!!
Is there any way the code could be altered? Or an alternative way of doing this?
Sorry for the long post!
