Batch Script - Creating Folders


Advertisements

The creation of a folder is done with the assistance of the MD (Make directory) command.

Syntax

MKDIR [drive:]path 
MD [drive:]path

Let’s look at some examples on how to use the MD command.

Examples

md test

The above command will create a directory called test in your current directory.

md C:\test

The above command will create a directory called test in the C drive.

md “Test A”

If there are spaces in the folder name, then the folder name should be given in quotes.

mkdir \a\b\c

The above command creates directories recursively and is the same as issuing the following set of commands.

mkdir \a 
chdir \a 
mkdir b 
chdir b 
mkdir c
