How do I create a printable directory listing? by MasterRacker
Posted: 17 May 00

Using the DIR command and redirecting to a text file certainly can work and DIR /s will even do subdirectories however, under NT4.0 and later, the TREE command can produce a much nicer listing.

TREE /f will files as well as folders and TREE /a will draw the 'branches' using standard ACSII characters rather than enhanced line drawing characters.  Putting it all together:

TREE c:\stuff /a /f > files.txt will create the file "files.txt" which will contain a nice, heirarchal listing of all the files in C:\stuff and all subfolders.
