    View a folder tree/path

    Is there a way to show what folders are within folders and then print it off? I have used TreeSizeFree but for the amount of folders in there, i cant get a suitable screen shot to print it off.

    Can someone let me know

    Thanks

    Tim

    Do it from DOS!

    tree - visual directory structure
    You often need to take prints of your physical directory structure but XP has no simple "visual" commands for printing directory contents. Here, try the Tree DOS command and redirect the output to a text file.

    tree > mydirectory.txt
    print mydirectory.txt

    You can parse most dos output to a text file with the >anyname.txt switch. Such as dir >output.txt

    the only trouble is, you get weird characters where lines or links should be. Is there anyway round that?

    DMEX can create a tree text file of folders. It's also a very handy renamer and integrates into the Explorer shell.

    Try the dos switch tree /a to use acsii instead of extended characters.

    Also load it into word and to a search replace.
