Print Directory Structure of Drives

Posted on 2008-11-08

What's a really good program that will analyze the entire hard drive or a mapped drive and allow me to print if on paper so I can get a good overview of the structure of the directories, and which files are where, etc?

I've got a lot of mapped drives and will take a long time to "Explore" being at the computer so it would be real helpful to get them printed out to paper somehow

    At the command line, use the 'tree' command, which will show the directory structure   You can also pipe the output of the command into a file, naturally.  The high-ASCII characters that tree uses may give you issues. If you have problems with the output, you can use the /a switch:
    C:\>tree /a  u:
    Folder PATH listing for volume Udrive
    Volume serial number is 88C0-017A
    |   +---a_yy
    |   |   \---a_zz
    |   \---b_yy

    Treesize Free has a reporting feature. It will report whatever is on the screen, so you expand the folders you want to see yourself. Prints to whatever printer you want. Although I find just using the program itself is more effective that looking at the paper report ;)
