Question Writing the contents of a directory to a text file

This is probably in the wrong forum since it's a windows tool I'm after, but I've placed it here so people having the offtopic banned would see it too...
Feel free to trash it, but please mods, *after* I'll get me a proper tool!

So, the main question is, how do I easly write the directories/files contents tree to a file?
Preferably to a text file, so it'll be easly viewable and small.


I'm asking this cause I've just got a huge amount of scene stuff, so I'm in the middle of sorting all this and packing, for a torrent upload on U-G.

in wondows XP its quite simple

type in the directory you want as root


c:\myfilesroot\ tree > [file loaction:\filename]

this will output directory structure from the called position and outputs the file as a ascii file

Is it just me or does it only write the contents of the directory I'm currently in?
Cause I want it to list all the directiories/files inside directiories/files, too.

I use the Total Commander for this. Check the buttons in the Top Bar. You can add a command to them.

Configurations --> Buttonbar

dir /s will list all dirs and files in a subdir (don't you know anything about dos shoonay?)

It won't list files in files though..

@R-N: Thanks, I'd rather stick with SpeedCommander

@Belg: Of course I don't, I'm an Amiga user
No, but really I did mess with dos to run old games back in 1999 when I got me first pc with win'98, but only knew hot to prep a boot disk, save memory and move between dirs.
BTW, Thankyou, that worked!

Try Directory Opus for Windows by GP Software. While it is expensive as hell, it has extensive capability to output directories to .txt with lots of formatting options etc., amongst a plethora of other ingenious functions. It is simply the mother of all file-managers!
