How do you want it exported? In tree form? If so, open CMD, go to the root of the drive you want to get data from and type
tree >> c:\file.txt

It'll have some funny characters if you do that, but you can usually do a find and replace all in Notepad to replace the screwy characters with dashes and pipes. That's the easiest way to do it, at least.

http://smallbusiness.chron.com/copy-list-files-windows-folder-excel-list-40032.html also has a guide for importing the directory list into Excel. Excel won't do a tree-form though. Would just display all the folders and subfolders.
