"So I would have to write you and ask the name of a file I need. Why don't you just give them logical names? "Backups, Restore, Recoveries" is logical. You can have up to 255 characters for the path."

Geek pots is what I call directories containing installs, fix-its, tweakers, configurators, and much more. You made a PaulB&Snick geek pot, I made one for the W7F folks.

When you mention file names, are you meaning the one in Google/MyDrive's college cafe's collections? If yes, keep in mind almost all of these things were created during pre-DOS"7", pre-Windows 95-98SE days. I was limited to eightCharacters.threeCharacters filenames to be able to use within DOS 3.3 to DOS 6.22, and within Windows 3.1 to Windows For Workgroup 3.11. W95-98se reduced usage of the batch-files, config.sys, and related text-based material.

Yes, I meant Google/MyDrive's college cafe's collections. I didn't know they were DOS-era programs. What do you have in your collection that might be useful?

Very likely the most useful will be racing through batch-files and borrowing bits and pieces which can be altered to fit current batch-file needs and wants. Bits and pieces include: Choice, If exist, If not exist, echo Y or N for auto-answers, GoTo, and other things. PaulB or Snick, two of many batch-file gurus, might post examples of what if anything they found interesting and useful.

I don't know DOS, only Windows. I need someone to write the precise text and instructions. But thanks for the offer. I'll rely on the 3 of you if I need something.
