Is it possible to copy just the folders and not the contents?

That should be possible using
robocopy <SourceDir> <TargetDir> /xf *.* /e
Another option that might be of interest in this context is /create, which will only create the folder and file structure, but will not copy any contents.
And then there's /L, which will only list the files to be copied, without actually copying anything; nice for tests.
Have a look at robocopy.doc in the installation folder for details.

Thanks. That works fine. I missed that Xf setting. The /L is also useful.
