I have hundreds of photos in subfolders, the photo names being prefixed
with a 4-digit sequence number.
I would like to be able to create a text file containing all the files
sorted by File Name and then showing the sub-folder that they are in -
is that possible?
I already have a .bat file set up to use the DIR command to create a
text file sorting the files by name within each folder, but I want to
be able to check that I have all the files - ie: none missing and no
duplicates.

Scenario: I am scanning in photos, allocating manually the sequence to
each, so I can give multiple photos the same desctiption and still have
a unique name. I am creating the files in a folder called "unfiled",
but then moving them to different sub-folders. I want to be sure that
I don't lose any or file the same photo in multiple folders.

Thanks in advance.

I use a free program, "Directory Printer" from Karenware, for these tasks:
