When I run
tree /a /f > output.txt in Windows' cmd, I get a nicely formatted directory structure. But the directory listing is not in any particular order. How can I get the tree to sort folders and files in alphabetical order?
Note: I need the output formatted as a hierarchy, so using
dir will probably not be sufficient. I probably need to use
An excerpt from the output of tree
+---HCM Documents | +---Interfaces | +---Process Flows | +---Workshops | | \---Overviews | +---Approvals | +---Requirements | \---Misc +---Testing Documents +---Communications | +---Statuses | +---Meeting Minutes +---Finance Documents | +---Taxes | +---General Ledger | +---Business | +---Process Flows | +---Purchases | \---Workshops +---Unfiled +---Infrastructure Documents +---Financials | +---Issue and Risk Log | +---Timelines | +---Templates | \---Decisions Log
Note that the folder names are not in alphabetical order. They are also not in order of modified date or size, or any other order I can think of.
Also, this is the default order I get when I run
dir without specifying sort order.
These documents are being accessed over a network drive but I don't see why that should make a difference. (Though when I run tree on local folders, they do seem to be in alphabetical order. Perhaps this is actually a factor?)
