Can somebody tell me how to I access a folder called My last holiday pictures (for example) using DOS? Thanks.
dir x:\path to folder\My last holiday pictures will list the contents of the folder.
cd x:\path to folder\My last holiday pictures will change directories to the holiday pictures directory.
after that you can just use dir to list the contents.
Johhny's stuff'll work for DOS in-a-console-box, but on the off-chance you're referring to "pure" DOS the filenames will be reduced to the 8.3 format ie. 8 characters (no spaces) and an extension. C:\My last holiday pictures\ would become C:\MYLAST~1\ - assuming there aren't any other similarly named folders, in which case the 1 might be a 2 upwards.
If you are trying to recover the folder, try GetDataBack.http://www.runtime.org/gdb.htm
The trial version will at least show the dir.

I'm asking because I wrote a little program that creates simple websites and one of the questions it asks to the user is "Where are the files? " and the user has to specify the path. As it is just for personal use, I'll just stick with single name folders. Thanks you everybody.
Don't forget the Quotes in you program. If the path to files has a space in the name you need to use quotes.
"C:\Documents and Settings" for example.
In the command prompt type
cd is for common directory
You should then see the c:\> directory
you can then use the dir command to browse the directory and typeing the
cd c:\ + path to the information you are trying to get to.
We already established that.
