    You can only start the system in a DOS command line. Nothing seems to be working and it looks like you will have to manually back up MS word files the user has created since the last back up.
    You issued the command CD My documents from the C:\> prompt and received a "too many parameters - documents" error. What is the error command?

    A) CD mydoc*.*

    B) CD mydocu~1

    C) DIR my*.* /v

    D) CD my doc*

    Answer tommorow :)

    [HIDE]B is probably the correct answer. Note that this makes assumtions that may not be justified. And I assume the last sentence should read "what is the correct command". :biggrin

    [HIDE]Boyce, I am not sure what you mean by * What is the error command?* Do you mean what is the correct syntax to change to the C:\my documents directory in DOS?

    If so the answer is *B*

    MSDOS (assuming ver 6.2 or similar) uses only 8 characters [/HIDE]

    I'm not sure where these questions are coming from, so I thought I ought to point out that the real correct answer is:
    cd "my documents"

    It is documented by Microsoft that there is no hard-and-fast mapping of LFN to SFN, so, while mydocu~1 is probably correct, there can be cases where it isn't. This is particularly important when files are being copied about, as in backup/restore for example, where strange collisions can occur.

    Just my 2d worth! :biggrin

    Harry.

    OK first one I got wrong my bad, made even more difficult by the fact I was looking for the syntax that would cause the error and not the correct entry

    Ah! Interesting. One possibility might be that they say that this is what CompTIA say is correct. If so then this would be another case of giving the 'official' answer in the exam, but remembering the 'real' answer for later! :dry
