    Default List all files in a location on hard drive

    So I was messing around trying to get a list of all my music I have ripped to a text file or similar and saw a few programs you could buy to do this for you, hmm not wanting to pay any money out I managed to sort a free option

    probably simple to a lot of people but maybe this will be of help to others. . . . .

    create a text file and put "dir /s *.* >dirlist.txt" without the " and save it as whatever.bat (change the .txt to .bat) - make sure the file type is set to ANSI

    copy that batch file to any folder you want to list the contents of then run it and it will create a text file with all the contents that are in it

    Handy tip. Tree size free will do a smilar thing but with a gui for those that prefer that to a text file.

    I have always used Karens directory printer which is a free directory/file listing app. Lots of options to filter out or include additional file information. (">

    good options I think I actually prefer the batch file option though do not need to install anything and it gives a pretty good list does al the folder so in my case albums then lists all the folders with contents - also takes 0 time to run
