    Hey guys,

    I'm looking for a program which lets you pick a folder and grabs all the files\folders names and puts it in a text file.

    I'm not sure if that makes sense, sorry if it doesn't.

    umm lol ... open command promt as admin and run

    Code:
    [B]cd[/B] [I]full path of desired folder[/I]
    [B]dir /s[/B] >c:\list.txt
    In list.txt you'll see what you need.

    If you use Windows 8 you don't even need the first line. Just enter desired dir and then file -> open command promt -> open command promt as administrator and run the second line.

    If you don't know what dir is type dir /? to see more commands.
    Yin says thanks.

    Try "dir /a /s >c:\list.txt"

    the "/a" shows all, including hidden and system - if I'm not mistaken - its been a while :)
    Yin says thanks.

    If you have Total Commander you can do it there aswel.

    method a:

    Just open desired location, press on show all files in current dir and all subdirs, select all, copy names with full path and finally paste it in notepad

    method b: In Mark menu select desired option
