Check your command options by typing copy /?.  I don't have access to dos anymore, but it should provide you with some solutions.  I don't think dos can extract files like a zip program.  I will need some time to think about possible solutions.  Did your original files all go into this new file?  You then lost the originals as a result?

How to hide files using the Attrib command


Attrib is a DOS command that sets or displays various file attributes. One of those attributes is the Hidden attribute, which determines whether or not a file can be viewed in a directory under normal circumstances. With the Attrib command, you are able to hide or show any non-system file, as well as view any file's current attributes.

To use Attrib, you must be at the DOS command prompt. In Windows XP, Vista, and 7, you can open a command prompt window by either typing "cmd" into the Run bar or by browsing to the Command Prompt (Start menu > All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt). In Vista or 7, you can also type "cmd" into the Search bar.

The syntax for using Attrib to hide a file is as follows:

attrib <path><filename> +h

If you are currently in the directory where the file is located, you can omit typing the path. And since DOS is not case sensitive, you can use either upper or lowercase letters, or both.

If you later want to make that same file visible again, just type:

attrib <path><filename> -h

To view the attributes of all of the files in the current directory (even hidden files), type "attrib" by itself. Keep in mind that hiding a file will make it harder to find, but it does not by any means make it impossible. If you have sensitive or confidential data that should not be viewed by other users, protect it using encryption, permissions, and a strong user account password.

How to create simple batch files


Creating a batch file
MS-DOS users
Microsoft Windows and other users

MS-DOS users
To create a basic batch file in MS-DOS, follow the below steps that give you an example of how to create a basic batch file.

  1. Open an MS-DOS command window or get to MS-DOS. Additional information about doing this can be found on document CHDOS.
  2. At the MS-DOS prompt, type: edit test.bat and press enter.
  3. If typed properly, you should now be in a blue screen. Within the screen, type:

    pause
    dir c:\windows
    dir c:\windows\system

  4. Once the above three lines have been typed in, click File and choose exit; when prompted to save, click "Yes." Users who do not have a mouse cursor can accomplish this same task by pressing ALT+F to access the file menu, then pressing "X" to exit, and pressing enter to save changes.
  5. Once you are back at the MS-DOS prompt, type: test and press enter. This will execute the test.bat file and begin running the file. Because the first line is pause, you will first be prompted to press a key. Once you press a key the batch file will run line-by-line; in this case, listing the files in the windows and windows\system directories.
If you wish to add more lines to this batch file you would simply type "edit test.bat" to edit the file again.
Additional information about the MS-DOS edit command can be found on our edit command page. Some versions of MS-DOS and bootable diskettes may not have the edit command; if this is the case, you would either need to obtain the edit.com file to access this file or use the copy con command.




Microsoft Windows and other users
A Windows user can still use the above MS-DOS steps if they wish to create a batch file. If, however, you're more comfortable using Microsoft Windows or your operating system, you can use any text editor, such as Notepad or Wordpad, to create your batch files, as long as the file extension ends with .bat. In the below example we use the Windows notepad to create a batch file.
  1. Click Start
  2. Click Run
  3. Type: notepad and press enter.
  4. Once notepad is open, type the below lines in the file or copy and paste the below lines into notepad.

    @echo off
    echo Hello this is a test batch file
    pause
    dir c:\windows

  5. Click File and click Save; browse to where you want to save the file. For the file name, type "test.bat", and if your version of Windows has a "Save as type" option, choose "All files", otherwise it will save as a text file. Once all of this has been done click the Save button and exit notepad.
  6. Now, to run the batch file, simply double-click or run the file like any other program. Once the batch file has completed running it will close the window automatically.

What is the mean auto exe c bat in dos files??


An AUTOEXEC.BAT file contains MS-DOS commands which are executed automatically when a Personal Computer boots. This file is usually located in the root directory of the hard drive or floppy from which the computer boots (or starts) up. The AUTOEXEC.BAT file is used to set various default settings and to run programs that should be executed upon startup. Below you will find a list of executable statements (commands) that typically go into an AUTOEXEC.BAT file, along with explanations their.


The AUTOEXEC.BAT file is one form of a batch file, and it is used to automate functions in MS-DOS. In their simplest form, batch files contain MS-DOS commands (batch file language) which includes commands for such things as loops and execution branches and the like.
ECHO
Example: @ECHO OFF
This optional command will suppress the display of subsequent commands while the AUTOEXEC.BAT file is being executed

How to beat cmapp


The reason why you cannot remove this file is because the file is active under Windows.
If you know the location of this file and its extension, then boot up in DOS mode and use the dos CD command to go to the directory where the cmapp file is location and use the dos DEL command to delete this file.

How do i reboot windows vista. i knwo theres a way to do it not from the CD and it returns it to how u go it out of the box. please let me know thanks


If you are using MS-DOS 6.0 or later, you can use multiple configuration menus or the CHOICE.COM program to configure your system. For more information on using these options under MS-DOS 6.0 or later, type HELP MULTI-CONFIG or HELP CHOICE at the MS-DOS command prompt and then press ENTER. To create the files to automatically restart your computer with the appropriate configuration, do the following:

Create a directory on your hard drive called C:\CONFIGS. Create the CONFIG.SYS and AUTOEXEC.BAT files you need to boot your system for HIMEM.SYS and applications that require it, with the following names: c:\configs\config.dos c:\configs\autoexec.dos Create the CONFIG.SYS and AUTOEXEC.BAT files you need to start your system for the program that conflicts with HIMEM.SYS. Any unique file extension can be used. The following example uses 386: c:\configs\config.386 c:\configs\autoexec.386 The following DEBUG script can be used to create a small executable file called REBOOT.COM. This file, when executed, will cause your system to restart. To create the file, change to the DOS directory, and type the following: debug reboot.comEnter the following information, pressing ENTER key after each line: A 100 ; Debug instruction for assemble MOV AH,0D ; Disk Reset INT 21h ; causes SmartDrv 4.x to write cache MOV AX, 40 ; set up segment addressing MOV DS,AX DS: OR BYTE PTR [17],0C ; equivalent of pressing CTRL+ALT MOV AX,4F53 ; Issue a "DEL" (53h = DEL scan code) INT 15h ; EMM386 sees this & shuts down. DS: MOV WORD PTR [72],1234 ; Set REBOOT flag to Warm-Boot (0=cold) JMP F000:FFF0 ; Execute the internal restart routine <CR> ; This line must be blank (just hit ENTER) R CX 20 ; File size to be written to disk (in hex) N REBOOT.COM ; Filename W ; Write the file to disk Q ; Quit Debug NOTE: The REBOOT.COM file created with this debug script is compatible with SMARTDrive and its write-behind cache feature. The instructions in REBOOT.COM cause SMARTDrive to write (flush) its write-behind cache to disk before the computer is rebooted.

The following commands can be used to copy and rename the configuration files to the root directory of the C drive and restart the computer. To simplify the process, you can put these commands into batch files.

To start your machine for Windows, use the following commands: copy c:\configs\autoexec.dos c:\autoexec.bat copy c:\configs\config.dos c:\config.sys reboot.com To start your machine for the 386 application, use the following commands: copy c:\configs\autoexec.386 c:\autoexec.bat copy c:\configs\config.386 c:\config.sys reboot.com

Dos Problem


If you are only trying to move your data file, then create the new directory using the cd command e.g.  cd test.  Then move the file to the new directory either using the move command or the copy command eg. copy test.file c:\test\test.file
Alternatively you should try using the old text editor program in dos to load your file and then save to the directory of  your choice.   good luck
