    Does anyone knows about any software that copies only folder structure from source (let say CD) to destination folder (i.e in Hard disk). I don't want files to be copied.

    :? :!:
    If there is not such kind of software, can anybody give hints or codes to do so in Visual Basic or C++.

    Thanks,

    You can do that very easily using a dos command called"XCOPY".
    The syntax is

    XCOPY source [destination] /T [/E]

    You should go to your destination point, and open a dos window there, or open a dos window and go to your destination point, whichever is easier.
    and enter the above command, where source is the folder you want to copy. In this case you can leave the destination out. but put /T after a space.

    XCOPY H:\MyFolder\ /T

    That will copy the directory structure but leave out empty sub-dirs at the source. However if you also add the /E as shown, it will include even the empty sub-dirs.

    Hope that helped.

    "WhereIsIt?" is the exact thing you need.
    Its a software to keep track of your CD collection.

    Its really good software, with features to search the entire collection.
    Found it on DIGIT CD once.

    its shareware btw

    You could write your own app that just calls this one in the background. Maybe using the Shell command in VB :)
