Program that lists all files and folders on drives?

Any suggestion for a program that list files\folders and exports them to .xls etc?

Tried treesize pro demo, and got it to list folders and files but not file extensions. dir /s > c:\sample.xls also works, but im guessing theres aprogram out threre that can keep record of files stored on the drives.

Everything will do that. Just leave the search box empty and export the list to a txt file. You can choose which drives etc, and of course filter for .exe or any other file type you want a catalogue of.

This will NOT go to an .xls file but will create an text file listing folders and files.

Copy this into the "Command Prompt" and click "Enter":

DIR "Y:\" /s > "D:\List.txt"

"Y:" is the path to what you want to the list.

but could be something like this:
DIR "E:\Newsbin DL:\" /s > "D:\List.txt"


"D:\List.txt" is where the text file name "List" will be created. In this case it is the D partition. For some reason with Windows 7, the text file can NOT be creataed on C-drive.

Hope this helps.

thanks, will try these out.

I have been using Everything, but never thought about exporting as text. (using it combined with filelocator)

What i like about everything is the server ability.

The capability is included in "Everything" ;



Just click on "Export" and it will export whatever it has in the window.
