    Why is this happening?
    Code:
    [C:\Windows.old]Echo %@Files[/s *] %@FileSize[/s *,b,a]
    [C:\Windows.old]
    
    I suppose it could be another stupid mistake on my part, but I'm not seeing it.

    Not reproducible here:

    Code:
    [C:\MongoDB]Echo %@Files[/s *] %@FileSize[/s *,b,a]
    8634 510537728
    
    [C:\MongoDB]
    
    You should be getting a lot of "access denied" messages from Windows.old. Do you have the same problem in any other directories?

    The other thing you should beware of is that the \Windows & \Windows.old directories will have a lot of circular symlinks, so (depending on your system settings) you'll loop endlessly until TCC eventually runs out of RAM. Do you have the same problem with a DIR /S in \Windows.old?
