Hi all,

I have a folder on a server that has a couple hundred subfolders in it, with files in those subfolders.

Now i want to create another folder but with the same subfolders in it - BUT WITHOUT the files.

I dont want to retype all the folder names - is there a way to copy the structure only??

Thanks
Sean

Try it this command from command prompt :

c:\> xcopy /E /T "C:\test\fold1" "C:\test\fold2"

fold1 : your existing folder
fold2 : your new folder to be created.
