Just thought I'd follow up with a useful command I figured out today:

dir /a:-d /s /b > c:\scratch\files.txt

This creates a file containing the fully qualified file names of all
(except for hidden and system) files in the current directory and all
subdirectories below it.

The /a:-d switch omits the directory names, which I don't want.

The /b /s combination gives fully qualified file names, unlike the
bare names with /b alone.

I have a path for the output file since I don't have write permission
on the drive where I ran this.

I'm dumping this into an Excel spreadsheet so that one of the
engineers I work with can check off which of the many documents in
that tree he wants me to review.
