printing directory tree

By Seadogs ·
Is there a way to print out a directory tree through windows? We have windows 2000 and would like to print out a directory tree containing probably thousands of directories. It would take forever to do this through dos. Does anyone know of any easy to use programs or a method to do this? Thanks!

Open a command prompt and go to the root of the drive. Type in
c:\tree /a > c:\folders.txt
This will place your directory structure in a text file that can be easily printed out.

I don't know if using the command promt will work correctly if you have folders with long file names.

There are numerous freeware utilities out there that will do the job.

Just search your favorite freeware/shareware download site.

DIR /AD /ON >>filename.txt

That will do a directory listing of folders only, sorted alphabetically. It will spit the output to a text file.

If you need a whole directory structure including subfolders, then add a /S switch.

And add the /N switch, just to make sure you get the full name, not the 8.3 naming. So, here is the full thing I would do:

DIR /AD /ON /N /S >>filename.txt

If you have less than 65,536 folders, look at:

(There are no spaces in the URL)

Choose ?Number and size of Files in folders? in the Topic box.
It?s a macro that will list the names of all the files on the chosen drive and the size in Kb.
You can customize it. Right now it highlights folders larger than 10 Mb in Red.

You can copy the code and paste it into the VB Editor in Excel.

Microsoft Visio does a great job of mapping out directories and networks complete with icons for each individual object. You can get more info at
http://www.microsoft.com/office/visio/
please remove any spaces in the above link
Good luck!
