    Greetings friends... I'm looking for a program that can create a simple text file of all the folder names on a hard drive.

    I just started using an eSata cradle to start doing my backup and archiving (I'm a photographer). Once I fill up the drive I'll be putting them in a safe but I'd like to have a printout bundled with them that lists all the jobs that are on the drive (the jobs are separated and named by folder on the drive)

    I could go through and write them all down manually but I'd love to have a program that could automate it for me.

    I'm working on a macpro that is running :apple: OSX 10.4

    Thanks so much for any help you can give!
