Hi, maybe the program already supports this, but please can you confirm if this is possible? I'll happily donate if you can solve my problem :)

I have 829 files within a folder structure up to 3 folders deep. I need to create a folder in the same directory as every file with the same name as the file.

For example:

Folder 1 > Folder 1a > Folder 1b >


Inside 'Folder 1b' I need folders created called 'Material1' + 'Material2' + 'Material3'

Ideally the solution could scan all directories from the base folder (Folder 1 in the example above) and create the folders in a single task, instead of having to move through all the end folders one at a time.

Is this possible? desperate for a solution!

Therefore one would use the tools of the operation system: a DOS-Batch or a PowerShell script.

First you have to define the rule in plain English words, as e.g.:

start at main folder
- foreach subfolder do
- foreach subfolder do
- foreach file do: create a folder from the file basename.

Then you can create (or ask for) the script.

Interesting challenge.


If this tool had saved you time, perhaps you want to donate an Dollar to Kim?
