I have a folder tree, like this (it's only an example, it will be deeper in my real case):
C:\test | +---folder1 | foo bar.txt | foobar.txt | +---folder2 | foo bar.txt | foobar.txt | \---folder3 foo bar.txt foobar.txt
My files have one or more spaces in the name and I need to perform a command on them, so I am interested in foo bar.txt but not in foobar.txt.
I tried (inside a batch file):
for /r test %%f in (foo bar.txt) do if exist %%f echo %%f
where the command is the simple
It does not work because the space is skipped and I get no output.
This works but it is not what I need:
for /r test %%f in (foobar.txt) do if exist %%f echo %%f
C:\test\folder1\foobar.txt C:\test\folder2\foobar.txt C:\test\folder3\foobar.txt
I tried using the quotation mark (") but it does not work:
for /r test %%f in ("foo bar.txt") do if exist %%f echo %%f
It does not work because the quotation mark is still included in the output:
C:\test\folder1\"foo bar.txt" C:\test\folder2\"foo bar.txt" C:\test\folder3\"foo bar.txt"
