it's a simple directory listing of files contained in the current directory and sub-directories. The resulting file list is outputted to a text file called "listmovies.txt"
The command is DIR the others are switches telling the DIR command how to list the results.
/B = Uses bare format (no heading information or summary)
/O:N = List by files in sorted order (N= By Name)
/S= Displays files in specified directory and all subdirectories.
You can see this all DIR switches by opening up a CMD prompt and type DIR /? and press enter.
So after you run the batch file containing this command line, it will create a text file with the results. You can use notepad to open the text file and see all your files listed there. This only tells you whats there in the specified order. It will not tell you what is missing but you can deduce that on your own by just looking at what is there. Also you can run the command manually (without having to put it in a batch file) but you would have to type in a cmd prompt every time you wish to run it. By creating a batch file, you only need to double click it to run it anytime you wish.
Too late, vladd beat me to it.
