How to examine folder contents?

Is there software out there that can examine all folders of a specific source and all its sub-folders (nested up to 40 folders) and output the number of files and types?

Maybe not exactly what you want. But for NTFS only partitions, WizTree is very fast and shows a breakdown of files/folders contained in each folder.

Antibody Software - WizTree finds the files and folders using the most disk space on your hard drive

It's freeware.

Edit: for a visual representation of folder structure see console Tree command.

There must be something that does specifically what you request but I don't recall seeing it. I would check the freeware sites such as snapfiles, softpedia, download.com and sourceforge.net
