    Hello there,

    I was wondering if there was a way to copy an entire file folder structure without its contents.

    For example, I have 300+ folders with even more subfolders filled with terabytes of data and I would like to copy the file structure (the 300+ folders) and not copy over all of its contents so that I may begin to build a new archive in the same format. I am currently making untitled folders one by one and then copy/pasting over the folder name. I was hoping that there was a more efficient way to do this...

    Thank you in advance for your help!

    Excellent! I will try that out.

    I am an avid googler but I was not able to structure my question well enough.

    THANK YOU !!:D

    Happy to help! This is what I used for search terms, and it was the first search result:

    By the way, be sure to open the script and read what it does before using it.
