Directory/folder utility

Is there a utility out there that can go through a drive/directories and list the name of directories, the total size of the directories and other attribute such as last modified or even what type files are within the directories, etc?

Take a look at DumpSec (www.somarsoft.com), a utility which we often recommend for requests like this one.

You can also use your own VBScripts to dump out the information you're looking for; take a look at the sample scripts on the Technet Script Repository to get you started: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/scriptcenter/scripts/default.mspx?mfr=true

Hello bigd563,
Something like this will do it...

Dim objFSO : Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Dim objOutput:Set objOutputFile = objFSO.CreateTextFile("C:\Output.log")
Dim dtOld

strSourceFolder = "C:\Testing" 'starting folder...will recurse downward from here

ProcessFolder objFSO.GetFolder(strSourceFolder)

With objOutput
  .WriteLine "Process completed at " & Now
  .WriteLine "==========================="
End With

Set objOutputFile = Nothing
Set objFSO = Nothing

Sub ProcessFolder(strSource)
  ProcessFiles strSource
  For Each fld In strSource.SubFolders
    ProcessFolder fld
End Sub

Sub ProcessFiles(strSrc)
  For Each file In strSrc.Files
    objOutput.WriteLine objFSO.GetExtensionName(file.name) & "," & file & "," & file.size & "," & file.datecreated & "," & file.datelastmodified & "," & file.datelastaccessed
  End If
End Sub
