    So im sitting here with almost 40cds 700 mb cds full of stuff.

    and im trying to file all the cds content and put all the folders and applications on note pad so i can look at the list and put everything in order on new burnd cds.

    example blazes fave adult contents he he he but i got to cd 9 and it takes for ever.

    is there a way to get a list of a cd's content in D: drive ie folders,applications and text names in text so i can copy and paste it in note pad rather then do it all manuely?

    also a list of individual folders content?

    id relly alprechiate some info as this work is very time consumeing

    :) Hi MRBLAZE! What you need right now is fresh lettuce, tomato, moza cheese, your choice of meat on fresh toasted bread with a glass of beer and lemon! Give your eyes and mind a rest. FanJ must be busy with something. Hang in there! :D

    Try opening a DOS prompt window and typing this:

    dir e:\ /S /ON > filelist.txt

    if you like, try dir /S /ON /P first.

    /S = all files plus sub-direcories
    /ON = order in alphabet A to Z.

    Hi Blaze,

    I used Ontrack Powerdesk 4 Pro to make that list.
    The Pro version is not free, but it looks to me that the not-Pro version is free. Have a look at this url:

    http://www.ontrack.com/freesoftware/

    Of course I don't know whether you can do it also with the not-Pro version.
    Powerdesk is kind of Windows Explorer but with a lot more features, and it makes file-management a lot more easier. I myself don't have the latest version (version 5).

    I will have a look for you whether it is possible to do what you want, without Powerdesk, but I am not sure about that.

    Maybe there are also free utilities for these kind of things, I don't know.

    Hi Blaze,

    I hope that version of PowerDesk is a really free one.
    On that Ontrack page, which I posted, were also not real free programs; I mean programs that are only trial-ware.
    But I believe that there is indeed a free version of Powerdesk.
    I don't know the differences between that free Powerdesk and the not-free Powerdesk Pro (I have that Pro version, and I absolutely love it; it is one of my most used programs!!!).

    OK, here is how I did it on my Pro version; I don't know whether you can also do that on the free version.

    [hr]

    Start Powerdesk.
    Choose your drive and map (directory).
    That map will then show in the right panel.
    Now we are going to select the files in that map.
    I assume you want to select all of them.
    Edit > Select All
    Now all the files in the right panel are selected.
    Edit > Copy Path as Text
    Start Notepad
    Paste

    You're ready.
    All the names of the files in that map are now copied with their full path into Notepad.

    In case you want only the names of the files, and not their full path:
    do not choose: Edit > Copy Path as Text
    but choose: Edit > Copy Name as Text

    [hr]

    As said, I hope you can do this also in the free version (if there is really a free version of Powerdesk).

    Hi MrBlaze,

    There is a free version of Powerdesk. I don't remember the differences.

    FanJ,

    Thanks for the info on the free version of PowerDesk (yes-it is free but some features are supposedly limited). I was just getting ready to buy WinRAR and saw PD takes care of all this. I am now giving the free version a test drive before deciding whether or not to purchase WinRAR. PD looks like it will do all that WinRAR does and then some. Looks promising.

    Again, thanks for the info .... ;)

    Regards,
    Kent
