    Want a program to create a list of my files


    I know there's a command prompt to do this, but it only works on the current folder. I have folders within folders and I need a program to easily list all those files.

    Not exactly what I expected, Word Man.

    I have 22,183 files on this computer, 99.44 percent of which are unrecognizable to me because they're just numbers/code.

    I don't think this is what the OP wanted at all.

    If OP is more specific, Wynona, I can be more specific.

    How about the whole c: drive, listed on desktop in a text file?

    dir /s c:\ > "%userprofile\desktop\cdrivefiles.txt"

    [This yields a 24.4 MB text file to my desktop! ]

    and many more variations available as described by the output of "dir/?"

    Depends on the end use whether command prompt will suffice or whether a "program" is needed.

    It's not actually the case, as asserted by OP, that:

    WizTree's not bad for a free program: http://antibody-software.com/web/index.php?ref=wiztree Perhaps that's the kind of response OP was looking for? Your guess may be better than mine unless OP responds to specify.

    Thanks, guess I was using the wrong one before.
