Finding writable files in a directory in a windows command line

If you want to find which files in a directory are writable, use this dos command ...

                       dir /a-r-d /s /b

/a is to search for attributes. In this case r is read only and d is directory. The minus signs negate those attributes. So we're looking for writable files only.

/s means recurse subdirectories

/b means bare format. Path and filename only.
