Windows 7: Copying Directory to Dropbox File

Copying Directory to Dropbox File

Hello Everybody.

I have used the command line to create a .txt file which lists a directory of files.

The command is:
dir /b > list.txt

I was curious if anybody knew how to copy it to Dropbox automatically.
Or flat out writing the output to Dropbox itself, instead of putting the file in the same directory.

Thanks.

Just specify a path after the redirect symbol.
Code:
dir /b >C:\Where\Ever\You\Want\list.txt

Awesome.

I did that exact same thing, but with quotes to the destination folder.

Now all I need is a way to automatically do this command when changes are made to the directory. That'd be amazing.

Hi Rkariff, sorry for the very, very late reply (I somehow missed yours),

It's possible to monitor a folder though some VBScript script.

If you're still interested, I could help you set that sort of thing up.
