server file and directory list

i have a dedicated server that i connect to via ftp to upload and download my websites.

over time i have accumulated over 10000 pages in many different directories.

is there a way that i could write a program that ftps into my server and writes to a text file every filename and folder that its in?

i have found many examples of ftp code but i don't know how i would extract all the info into a file

I imagine you could work with fso.  Add a reference to 'Microsoft Scripting Runtime' in your project and try this:

'This will create a text file listing every file and folder on a persons C: drive.  You will need to tweak it to work for ftp.  Somehow you will need to link svr to the server and not to the
'hard drive also fldr will need to be set to the root folder you want start with.
'Set svr = fso.GetDrive("C:\")     should need to be something like   Set svr = fso.GetDrive("\\ServerName\Whatever\")
'Set fldr = fso.GetFolder("C:\")

Option Explicit

Private fso As FileSystemObject
Private svr As Drive
Private fldr As Folder
Private fldr2 As Folder
Private fldr3 As Folder
Private fl As File

Private Sub Form_Load()
    Open "C:\OutputFile.txt" For Output As #1

    Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    Set svr = fso.GetDrive("C:\")
    Set fldr = fso.GetFolder("C:\")
   
    Print #1, "C:\"
    For Each fl In fldr.Files
        Print #1, vbTab & fl.Name
    Next
   
    For Each fldr2 In fldr.SubFolders
        Print #1, fldr2.Path
        GetFiles fldr2
    Next
   
    Close #1
    MsgBox ("Finished")
End Sub

Private Sub GetFiles(fldr2 As Folder)
    For Each fl In fldr2.Files
        Print #1, vbTab & fl.Name
    Next
   
    For Each fldr3 In fldr2.SubFolders
        Print #1, fldr3.Path
        GetFiles fldr3
    Next
End Sub
