Count of Files in folders and subfolders

Last Modified: 2017-11-22

iam looking for a solution to count the files in folders & subfolders , calling for a path from the Main DIR.

The output will be Main folder name
(1) Primary folder  (Only name mostly)    (2) All the list of subfolders with count of files    (3) Only file extension.

This will include any empty folders

Also wish to know if any alternate tools which can copy large files in lesser time. ( From Dir to Dir). I have tried xcopy on Dos prompt even though it takes lot of time.
