Full file listing on specific drive

Hi,

I am trying to develop and Achive Policy for my office. Before I can decide what is the most appropriate and effective method to use I need to examine the files on the network dirves. I intended to get a list of all the files, including all other relevant information such as "Modified Date", "Last Accessed Date", etc. I would then import this list into Access/Excel and then run some statistics on usage, dates, locations, etc.

The problem I am having is that I CAN get a list of files and sub-folders for a particular folder that I specify, but how do I can a list of all the files starting from the root of the hard drive. I thought that this may have been a easy process but there are folders under folders under folders and so on.

I am using MS VBScript with IE 6.01. The operating system is Windows NT 4.00 SP6a but should work with Active Directory as well.

Help would much appreciated.

Thanks

Since you know how to get the propertys you only have to implement a recursice file search :

Dim FSO, FSO_DIRECTORY, FSO_FILES, FSO_DIRECTORYS

Function DirectoryInformation(folder)
        Set FSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
        On Error Resume Next
        Set FSO_DIRECTORY = FSO.GetFolder(folder)
        Set FSO_FILES = FSO_DIRECTORY.Files
        Set FSO_DIRECTORYS = FSO_DIRECTORY.Subfolders
            If FSO_FILES.Count > 0 Then
                    For Each FSO_FILE In FSO_FILES
                        If FSO_FILE <> "" Then MsgBox FSO_FILE
                    Next FSO_FILE
            End If
            If FSO_DIRECTORY.Count > 0 Then
                For Each FSO_SUBDIRECTORY In FSO_DIRECTORYS
                    DirectoryInformation (FSO_SUBDIRECTORY)
                Next
            End If
        Set FSO_DIRECTORY = Nothing
        Set FSO_FILES = Nothing
        Set FSO_DIRECTORYS = Nothing
End Function

' usage

Call DirectoryInformation("c:\")

I copied it from my VB project so you have to change msgbox to something else ( wscript.echo )
