When we create a project, company or whatever we use a folder structure.

Is there a software that can allow us to create a folder structure like that of visio and then export the folder structure out and also update existing folder structure with an NEW folders that are added to the folder structure?

I do not want to just copy and paste, but rather a use a software to help and create a few templates.

Should be possible to do with a script. Can you update the question and add details about the exact folder structure you want initially? – Karan Nov 8 '12 at 20:35
This is the thing. I know that I could use a script... However I was wonder if there is another way to make life easier. For example, you can me a folder structure in VISIO.... would be great if you could export the structure out to real folders. – Arthor Nov 8 '12 at 22:00
I would create the templates in explorer and use rsync to copy them somewhere. – Ярослав Рахматуллин Nov 9 '12 at 20:02
