    Hello,
    >ver
    TCC 11.00.52 x64 Windows 7 [Version 6.1.7600]

    In my tcmd.ini, NTFSDescriptions=Yes

    [C:\Temp]
    >*dir test.txt

    Volume in drive C is OS Serial number is a411:e530
    Directory of C:\Temp\test.txt

    9/11/2010 11:06 13 test.txt
    13 bytes in 1 file and 0 dirs 4,096 bytes allocated
    114,443,120,640 bytes free

    [C:\Temp]
    >describe test.txt /D"Test Description"

    [C:\Temp]
    >*dir DESCRIPT.ION

    Volume in drive C is OS Serial number is a411:e530
    Directory of C:\Temp\DESCRIPT.ION

    9/11/2010 11:06 29 DESCRIPT.ION
    29 bytes in 1 file and 0 dirs 4,096 bytes allocated
    114,443,108,352 bytes free

    [C:\Temp]
    >tail DESCRIPT.ION
    "test.txt" Test Description

    Perhaps I misunderstand, but I thought using NTFS Descriptions meant the DESCRIPT.ION file would not be used.

    Not reproducible here. I suspect you're not looking at the real TCMD.INI -- run OPTION, look at the Advanced page, and let me know whether "NTFS Descriptions" is checked.

    In TakeCommand, I looked at Options->Configure TakeCommand->Advanced tab; "NTFS Descriptions" is checked.

    At the command line, I ran OPTION, on the Advanced tab "NTFS Descriptions" was _not_ checked.

    I obtained the location of my .ini file via the _ININAME env var: C:\Users\Charles\AppData\Local\JPSoft\TCMD.INI

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    Those are two different options. Take Command has an "NTFS Descriptions"
    option that it uses for the List View window; it is not the same as the TCC
    "NTFS Descriptions" option that is used by DESCRIBE and DIR / PDIR.
