Help with folder recursion

Hi

I have a folder ie:
d:\folder1

it has both files and subfolders within it ie:
d:\folder1\subfolder1
d:\folder1\subfolder2

I want a function to rebuild the contents of d:\folder1 in d:\folder2
(Not a copy or move just create the folder/file- the content of the file is not important just the name)

Hope that is clear

Ok, here we go :

Private Sub CopyFolder(source, destination)
  Dim objFSO As Object
  Dim objF As Object
   
  Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
 
  If Not IsObject(source) Then
    Set source = objFSO.GetFolder(source)
  End If
 
  If Not objFSO.FolderExists(destination) Then
    objFSO.CreateFolder (destination)
  End If
 
  For Each objF In source.Files
    objFSO.CreateTextFile destination & "\" & objF.Name
  Next
 
  For Each objF In source.SubFolders
    CopyFolder objF, destination & "\" & objF.Name
  Next
End Sub


Be aware that it doesn't contain any checks and error handling....

Usage:

CopyFolder "D:\folder1", "D:\folder2"

quick and dirty:

dim objFSO as Object
dim objF as Object
set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
set objF = objFSO.GetFolder ("D:\folder1")
objF.Copy "D:\folder2"

I am not interested in the contents of each file just in re-creating the file structure.

I am just come up with this. Any improvements?

text1 = "d:\folder1"
text2 = "d:\folder2"

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    CreateSC Text1, Text2
End Sub

Function CreateSC(ByVal pstrPath As String, ByVal pstrOutPath As String)

    Dim objFolder As Scripting.Folder
    Dim objFile As Scripting.File
    Dim objFS As New Scripting.FileSystemObject
    Dim objTS As Scripting.TextStream
    Dim objSubfolder As Scripting.Folder
    Dim strFolder As String
    Dim strFile As String
   
    Set objFolder = objFS.GetFolder(pstrPath)
   
    For Each objFile In objFolder.Files
           
        strFile = pstrOutPath & Replace(objFile, pstrPath, "", , , vbTextCompare)
        objFS.CreateTextFile strFile, True
       
    Next
   
    For Each objSubfolder In objFolder.SubFolders
       
        strFolder = pstrOutPath & Replace(objSubfolder, pstrPath, "", 1, , vbTextCompare)
        If Not objFS.FolderExists(strFolder) Then
            objFS.CreateFolder strFolder
        End If
        CreateSC objSubfolder, strFolder
       
    Next

End Function
