Is there a way to produce a directory listing which only returns the first level of folders and none of the sub-folders? This list will then be outputted to a text file.

Actually non-recursive is the standard. If you only want directories, try this:

dir *.

In comparison this will list only directories but recursively:

dir *. /s
  • Brilliant, just what I needed. I also added the /b switch to return the folder names only.
