I wrote the following command in windows XP's command shell and something strange happened:
C:\Folder1> copy sample.txt :
Because of my typing mistake, I wrote ":" instead of "D:"
... but it copied the sample.txt to somewhere I cant find!
I searched my whole HDD for sample.txt but the only instance of this file is the original one which is in C:\Folder1.
Do you know where ":" path actually is in Win-XP command shell?
You might say ":" is current path and the file has been copied onto itself but look at this:
If you run that command for the first time, this will be the result:
1 file copied.
but the next time you run that command it will ask you:
overwrite sample.txt? (yes/no/all)
So if it were writing the file onto itself, both results would have to be the same but they aren't.
Thanks in advance for your help.
