dirtree is a command line utility for searching for files on disc and displaying the results in a nice graphical directory tree structure.

If you are looking for a file called 'fred', enter 'dirtree fred*' from a command prompt, and after chugging through your disc, it will display any files it finds.

If you only want text files called 'fred', for example,  use 'dirtree fred* +<text>'

If you have a large hard disc with many directories and files, you may need to increase your wimpslot size before running the program or you may get an 'out of memory' error.

The full syntax of the command is :

*dirtree /h
