Recursive 'Make File List'

Post by Tomcat » 27 Apr 2006, 23:10

Here an idea for the 'Make File List' Feature. Can an option be added to recursively dive into selected directories and list their content also?

This should be solved once Altap guys enable us to find files/directories and "redirect" the matching results into panels. That way you could [Alt]+[F7] search for *.* through a certain directory, redirect the results into a panel and then make a file list of everything.

Yep, that would work for filenames, but sometimes I would like to have a list that includes the path information.
I looked at the find dialog and, hey, it is all there: a nice table with filename, path, size, date, attributes, all I can think of BUT it seems that this list cannot be exported :( . The Edit menu has the familiar 'Copy Path+Name as Text' but it is disabled if more than one file is selected.

So I would like to reword my request:
Can the Find dialog be enhanced to allow an export of the 'Found Items' list as text to the clipboard?
If this would be configurable like the 'Make File List' Command it would be the ULTIMATE solution to my problem and I could retire my stand-alone tool (like so many others since I stumbled upon SS :wink: )

Code: Select all

$(Path)$(FileName)$(CRLF)
Is this what you're looking for? Short example listing:

Code: Select all

\DIRECTORY\SUBDIRECTORY
\DIRECTORY\FILE.EXT
So you could make a list of all found directories/files with their full paths.

Yes, Josip; this plus an option to list all/some files (and directories) in sub-directories as the Find dialog allows with the 'Search subdirectories' option.

Hm, not at all.
There is missing command to make list of sub- and sub- and sub- ... directories.
I have Directory with lot and lot of Subdirectories. And some of these Subdirectories (but I do not know exactly which one) has also another Subdirectories (but I do not know how much). How to make list of all Sub- and sub- ... directories from place "Directory"?
Can not use Ctrl+M because it does not search in Subdirectories.
Can not use Ctrl+F - I get list of all subdirectories which I need but - I am not able to copy this list to clipboard :-)

Short example:

Code: Select all

\DIRECTORY\SUBDIRECTORY1
\DIRECTORY\SUBDIRECTORY2
\DIRECTORY\SUBDIRECTORY3\SUBDIRECTORY3.1
\DIRECTORY\SUBDIRECTORY3\SUBDIRECTORY3.2
...
\DIRECTORY\SUBDIRECTORY68\SUBDIRECTORY68.1
\DIRECTORY\SUBDIRECTORY68\SUBDIRECTORY68.2
...
\DIRECTORY\SUBDIRECTORY300

Note: looks like a good idea for another Automation script.
