How can I copy a folder strucure (only) on OSX?

Hi,

My first question here....

I'd like to be able to duplicate a folder structure in Finder from a source to a target, without the folder contents.

Many Thanks,

Please try this command from your OS X command line

    ~/from$ find . -type f -exec touch ~/to/{} \;

You could also use the command lndir  To see more on this command open your terminal and type "man lndir", without the quotes.

Hi Strung,

Thanks for your response, although this does not work as needed. I am looking for a way to copy the folder structure (without any data) from a child folder. i.e:

1. Locate the source child folder (which could also be in a hierarchy of multiple folders, but I only wish to copy it's structure)

/VOLUME/folder_one/second_folder/third_folder/source_folder

2. Folder structure is generated in new location.

This is a very simple example, however the reason for doing this is to work with folders that are sometimes 10 or 15 levels deep.

Did you try my terminal commands? http:#34939015

The BSD terminal is more powerful than any GUI utility.
