Make New folders in many different folders at the same time

Postby rbovendaerde » Tue Aug 31, 2010 6:30 pm

Is it possible to make New folders in many different folders at the same time, with the BRU?
Example:
I want to make always the same 3 folders: tool, data and comments
In many folders (4.000) at the same time, so that I get
albert
    tool
    data
    comments
jack
    tool
    data
    comments

Thanks a lot

No that's not possible with BRU.

You have to use an batch like

FOR %%X IN (' dir /AO') DO (
md %%X\tool
md %%X\data
md %%X\comments )

But i didn't have the right syntax just in mind.

You can ask in the AutoHotkey.com forum or an VBScript forum for an script to do that.


Or use DonationCoder's Drag and Drop Shell Robot
from http://www.donationcoder.com/Software/Mouser/dragdrop/index.html
to execute an batch like
md tool
md data
md comments

in all related folders. (But i didn't find this tool intuitive ;D)

BRU can't do that. Did not try it myself, but I am quite sure a Powershell script can be written relatively easy to do this.
