Beginners Guides: Understanding and Creating Batch Files  - PCSTATS.com Beginners Guides: Understanding and Creating Batch Files
Sun, May 01 2011 | 9:40AM | Filed under: Beginners Guides| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

In this Beginners Guide, PCSTATS is going to walk you through one of the simplest but potentially most powerful ways to customize and simplify the management of your computer: batch files. These text files are easy to create, and only as complex as you want them to be, but they can perform many useful operations from file backups to system configuration quickly and automatically.

At their simplest, batch files are text files which execute one or more command prompt commands in a specific order. The power of a batch file lies in the way that it allows you to combine multiple commands into one batch file 'program' and customize the way that each command operates.

Finding the right software program to clone a hard drive is one thing, but how about cloning Microsoft WindowsXP and the rest of a computer in one go? This guide to Cloning an Operating System explains all the steps involved. - PCSTATS Tips
