    Hard Copy of directory and files

    I am trying to get a hardcopy, or at least a softcopy in a .txt file of all the folders and files in a root folder. I can run the DIR command in the DOS Command Window, but I cannot get anything more than a listing of the high-level folders in the root directory and those files in the root directory <img src=/S/brickwall.gif border=0 alt=brickwall width=25 height=15>. From the CMD screen, I am typing

    dir r:level1level2rootfolder*.* /a > commonfile.txt

    but this is not giving me what I had hoped to get. If any of you remember DOS and can help out, I will greatly appreciate it. Thanks

    Download and install Karen's Directory Printer

    It's free. Enjoy!

    Re: Hard Copy of directory and files

    Ok, for DOS you need to include a "" between "r:" and "level1", hence R:LEVEL1LEVEL2ROOTFOLDER. Remember DOS isn't case sensitive. Then, to get the subdirectories as well you need /s (for subdirectory) with the /a.

    You can also print the director list from Outlook, something I learned here at the Lounge.

    "In Outlook bring up the Outlook Bar and click on the Other Shortcuts button. You should have several icons - My Computer, My Documents, Favourites. Click on any of these and the folder list should be listed. Click on the folder you want. Also click on View/Folder List to show the files within that folder and print."

    Hope this helps.
