MS-DOS Architecture and Commands.
Use the DIR, XCOPY, and DOSKEY commands.
Dir /w /p /a (attributes) ~ dir /ah will show hidden files. Dir /o/h will show hidden files in alphabetic order.
Dir /a displays only files that show the attributes you specify. Which are h,s,d,a,r , use a minus sigh in front to show opposites. Do not separate separate choices with spaces. Sort ~ /o options = n,e,d,s,g,c /s all in all sub directories, and c for compression ratio.
Xcopy copies directories, and their sub-directories. Not hidden or system files, (use diskcopy here).
/y=overwrite, /a = only files with archive file attribute set. /m = same as /a and turns off archive file attribute.
/s= for sub-directories to, MUST STATE /S for subs. REMEMBER will not copy subs if they are empty,
MUST use the /E switch for that. /v for verification. Use a batch file to automate these commands.
Doskey loads into memory and recalls dos commands. , Edit command lines and run macros. Use up, down
arrows. F1, F3 = all first and past commands. Can reprogram DOS commands with this, called Refining commands. CANNOT use doskey in a batch command.
Use FDISK to configure a partition table.
FDISK/Status will show status without starting FDISK. Use FDISK for creation of a primary MSDOS partition. And other extended partitions, Setting one, deleting one, Selection of a second disk to partition. Max size is 2 gigss. Deleting a partition will lose the data.. If drive is COMPRESSED FDISK will not show it. Will have to delete partition to resize it. No SUBST command. FORMAT command is next.
Describe the characteristics of the FAT . ~ File Allocation Table.
FAT acts as a map to storage location of files on disk by indicating which clusters are allocated to each file and in what order. Keyed to file names in directories. FAT keeps list of which clusters are bad, which are in use, and which are free for data. FAT consists of a series of linked lists. Each cluster is assigned a FAT entry. ~ 2 corresponds to cluster 2. EOF is marked here. First two fats are reserved for information and buffers.
