In this video I demonstrate an oldie but a goodie, how to redirect output that normally appears on your screen to a file. I take it a step further and show you how to append to the file as well.
These are great tips if you want to put ping, tracert and other commands into a batch file and schedule some testing after hours.
The only disadvantage to this is that you may end up deleting several files if all you do is put those contents into another file.
In this case you can use Microsoft’s clip command to put your output directly into the clipboard, so all you have to do is paste the contents into your document.
Real straight forward tip that will save you some time when you’re troubleshooting at the command prompt.
