sub-folders should have a file with the extension ".cue" within them
but some may not. what i want to do is somehow scan all thes
sub-folders without the ".cue" file and deal with those folders

Hi, dannymichel.

As an old-timer, comfy at the C:> prompt, I probably would open a Command
Prompt window and use the good old Dir command from MS-DOS days:
Dir c:\<foldername>\*.cue /s

Dir produces a Directory, as you probably know or might guess, of
<foldername>. The * is a wildcard substituting for ANY filename, so *.cue
should list every file with the .cue extension. The /s switch means to
include files in all subfolders. This is the opposite of what you want, but
any folder whose name does NOT appear in the listing is a target for you to
"deal with".

In the Command Prompt window, type any command followed by /? to see a
mini-Help file listing all the switches and parameters available with that
command. Dir /? will explain the /s switch and other options.

In the GUI, I'd probably use Vista's Search command to do the same thing:
Press the Start key and type "C:\foldername\*.cue" and see which folders do
NOT show up. But I haven't really used this one much so I'm not sure how
well it works.

thank you for replying.i really appreciate it
the thing is i already know how to do a search for any file with
specific extension in a folder and any sub-folder in it

i really really need a list of folders lik
List of folders without .cue in them
D:\folder\folde

knowing what folders they are in is not going to do anything for me
i need a list, whether it be in a text file or just in explorer

Download AgentRansack.

Run a search for *.cue and start the search in the top folder

In the first column will be every file.

In the second will be all their locations.

Could have opened all of the directories manually by now and listed
each.
