You could even try:
dir Filename.txt 2>Filename.txt
. Volume in drive C is volumename
. Volume Serial Number is ABCD-1234
.
. Directory of C:\adirectory
.
.03/01/2018..01:36 PM..................0 filename.txt
................1 File(s)..............0 bytes
................0 Dir(s)..88,624,267,264 bytes free
(ignore the periods, used for better forum display)

Hope this helps
