Hi
I'm trying to produce a routemap of a server at work showing all of the folders and the files contained within them. We need to cut back some deadwood reorganise some of the files more clearly.
Is there anyway to display this information without just typing it out?

There are several utility programs that will let you sort the drive by directory size. One I've used is called TreeSize. Not a recommendation but just one I've used.

Then you can see which directories are taking the most space to help decide what to clean.

That's great thanks Bob, that'll definitely be useful. Before I get to that stage though I'm just trying to get a printout list of the files and folders on this server. Is this possible on XP I can't find a view to show everything I need.
Thanks.

Simple, it would be huge but:

Open a cmd prompt ( start / run / cmd )
Change to the root of the drive ( cd \ )
Then enter dir *.* /s /h > files.txt

Then open up files.txt
