A free little gui tool that can make a deep set of folders from a text file defining them is here:

If that doesn't do what you want, post a request on the forum coding snacks section, and someone will code up a little freeware tool for what you want.

The mkdir command-line utility can do this:

C:\>mkdir a\b\c\d\e\f\g\h\i\j\k\l

explanation from mkdir /?:

MKDIR creates any intermediate directories in the path, if needed.
For example, assume \a does not exist then:

    mkdir \a\b\c\d

is the same as:

    mkdir \a
    chdir \a
    mkdir b
    chdir b
    mkdir c
    chdir c
    mkdir d

Do you really need a GUI for something that simple? – grawity Jan 8 '10 at 16:51

If it's multiple folders within the one folder you might want to investigate Powershell. This will allow you to create a script to loop creating folders.
