Hi,

What I want to achieve is to expand ALL my music folders, on my music drive partition, in a single Explorer Window & save this to any form of text file. If not any form of text file, then any form that will print as viewed on the monitor.

The reason is I am randomly burning the albums to CDR for playback on my vehicles' mp3 stereos, & I want tick the albums off so not to duplicate them on various CDs. Is there any way to do this? I would rather avoid commandline solutions. Thanks.

Go to command prompt (Start>Run>cmd>Enter)

Type cd M: (assuming M: is your music drive) and press <Enter>

Type tree > tree.rtf and press <Enter>

The directory structure will be saved as a Word doc, in M:.

Open it in Word and choose 'MS-DOS' in the window that appears, then print it.

To get a screen dump, press the PrintScreen key on your keyboard, open any paint program window and right-click in that window, left-click Paste in that menu (this transfers whatever is in your Clipboard into that window).
Or use this perhaps

@jwil1

Tried the tree.rtf command but my version of DOS prompt did not seem to like it for some reason. Don't use Office anyway, although I assume it would have opened in OpenOffice. Thanks for response.

@feersumendjinn,

That programme was perfectly ideal. Thank you. Where do you people get these little gems of apps from?

Just curious, what keywords/phrase(s) did you use. I have tried searching for apps with Google in the past & usually ended up with pages of dribble.

Guess my searching parameters need fine-tuning :waughh:

CMD Prompt
Change to the Directory you want then type in
dir /s /o /b >C:\filelist.txt
You can vary the output by ommiting one or more of the flags. Will save a text file to C:\ drive

I use this with every CD/DVD I burn and use Search & Replace program to search the text files.

I tried jwil1's tree cmd and it barfed after about 10% of what I wanted, not so sucessful for me.

feersumendjinn's solution would be ok with just a couple of folders and a few files, but if there was numerous folders and files it would not fit on one screen dump.

There are several Windows programs about that can also achieve this. FolderTree I think is one
