We are searching for a software that can display the drives contents with the following features:

  • Display the Tree of the drive.
  • Expand ALL or Collapse ALL of the folder names (show/hide it's sub-folder contents).
  • Finally, capability of printing the drive contents as in the apps screen.

We have WinDirStat (works great bt can't get it to expand all folders/sub-folders etc., either can't get it to print)

TreeSizeFree and SpaceSniffer, but can't them to do what we want.

Tree Size Pro can do that (Jam Software).

Total Commander can do that (Ghisler software).

John,
AFAIK, TC can't do his second bullet (it can do his first and third bullets). Yes, it has tree display features (Show>Tree and Show>Separate Tree), but each folder must be clicked to Collapse/Expand it, i.e., there is no Collapse All and Expand All that I'm aware of. If they exist, please post how to do that. Thanks, Joe

Sorry for the delay.

All has the capability of 'Display the Tree of the drive', but none has:

  • Expand ALL or Collapse ALL folders and sub-folder
  • Capability of printing the drive contents as in appears in the Tree.

We have not been able to make this happen with none.

The tools posted are the only ones I know that will print.

I have Windows Explorer, xPlorer2 (Zabkat), Tree Size and Total Commander.

You can try TREE (Command) and output to a file. It is a /F parameter to list names. You would have to run it for the directory structure you want. I use this for specific folders and it works.

Remember we want the drives contents, not specific folder.  Trying to understand if your answer is Yes or No of what we want in ID: 41860045.  Can the apps you recommend do what we want?  Which one?

To the best of my knowledge (and you can see I have most of the apps) you cannot do just as you wish.

Take a look at Directory Opus (aka DOpus):
https://www.gpsoft.com.au/index.html

I don't use it because I'm very happy with Total Commander, but DOpus gets rave reviews as a file manager. The manual for it is here:

online
https://www.gpsoft.com.au/help/opus12/index.html

PDF
http://cdn.gpsoft.com.au/Opus12/Opus12_Reference_Manual.zip

Note this on page number 22 of the manual (page 28 of the PDF file — copied here under "Fair Use"):

o  Numpad * will recursively expand everything below the selected item.
o  Numpad + expands the selected item the first time you push it; pushing it again expands the first level of child items (but not the children of those items).
o  Numpad - collapses the selected item (the same as left-arrow, except it won't go to the parent folder if you push it twice).
Regards, Joe

Yup! found in the doc "Prints the contents of sub-folders in "grouped" mode. Files and folders are indented to reflect the tree hierarchy."

I'm glad that will work for you. If I ever move away from TC, it will likely be to DOpus.
