Is there a program that can do this...?

I'm looking for a proggie that can search my hard drives for every file and count them by file type.

hmm...

you could sort of do this by listing the number of files with certain extensions.

1) get to your command prompt
2) type 'cd\' then enter
3) type 'dir /s *.XYZ' where XYZ is the filetype you are interested in .txt, .doc, etc) then press enter

The /s will tell the computer to search through all subdirectories.

You just have to do it for each type of file you are interested in numbering.

Just a possiblity to help

No, that won't work. I don't want to have to hunt down every different type of file and then type them in.

Well, you don't have to. Write a script that goes through every permutation (every possible filetype). Yeah, it's not pretty, but it works.

It's called WinDirStats and it's freeware (I think) and it will give you exactly what you want!
