Hello,

Is there any easy way to list all files (and their sizes) that are contained in sub folders.
Run something like:

D:\MainFolder\list_files_and_size.bat

And get a list of all files and their sizes in all subfolders of MainFolder?

Thank you

Yea, but I only want to display SubFolder, FileName and size. No more.

Here's a fairly simple BAT file that will write to a CSV file with the file size and full path.  Then just open the CSV file in Excel to allow reporting, sorting, etc.  Naturally the output format could be changed if this isn't ideal...

@echo off
set BaseDir=D:\MainFolder
set OutFile=logfile.csv
(
  echo Size,Filename
  for /f "tokens=*" %%F in ('dir /s /b /a-d "%BaseDir%"') do echo %%~zI,"%%~I"
)> "%OutFile%"

Open in new window

Hi billprew,
Unfortunately, command:

dir /s /b /a-d "%BaseDir%

Open in new window


only lists path and file name, as shown in image attached.

It doesn't show size of files.

Your best bet is to use 'FOR /R' as in the following command:

@for /r "D:\MainFolder" %a in (*) do @echo %~dpa %~nxa %~za

Open in new window

Or you can try this neat little batch file:

@echo off
setlocal enabledelayedexpansion

for /r "D:\MainFolder" %%a in (*) do (
  set dp=%%~dpa
  echo !dp:~0,-1! %%~nxa %%~za
)

Open in new window

The '!dp:~0,-1!' strips away the trailing '\' (backslash) character from the file's pathname otherwise, '%%~dpa' gives you the drive and path of the file, '%%~nxa' gives you the filename and it's extension (if any) and '%%~za' gives you the file's size.

Sorry, typo, should be:

@echo off
set BaseDir=D:\MainFolder
set OutFile=logfile.csv
(
  echo Size,Filename
  for /f "tokens=*" %%F in ('dir /s /b /a-d "%BaseDir%"') do echo %%~zF,"%%~F"
)> "%OutFile%"

Open in new window
