    When I use touch recursively, for example:

    touch /s *.usf

    It prints out thousands of messages like this:

    "D:\ue3\Work\UnrealEngine3\HmsExampleGame\*.usf"
    TCC: (Sys) The system cannot find the file specified.

    When I use /s, it's because I know there is a set of files located somewhere in the directory tree that I want touched. I don't care about the directories that don't have any files, I care about the seeing files that were actually touched.

    The behavior of other commands with the /s argument seems to be the same. Am I missing some option to control this spam?

    Thanks,
    Wade

    Use the /E option to suppress non-fatal error messages.

    Thanks! Works great, exactly the output I was hoping for. I noticed /Q but missed /E.
