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.
