In such situations, an application which can create folders in bulk while abiding all the specified rules will come helpful. Folder Lab is a minuscule standalone application that lets user apply pre-defined rules before creating directories in bulk. Since it offers a pre-defined set of rules, you’ll be able to manipulate the batch folder creation in multiple ways.
You just need to specify the path where folder hierarchy is to be created. Additionally, it lets user create files in the specified location while supports copying of complete file/folder structure to specified folder as well. Once the path is selected, just click Go to choose an option.
Since it’s written specifically for creating a folder hierarchy/structure, it offers a number of options to create folders, including, Folder Structure with numbers or alphabets with defined pre & post fixes in their title, Folder title with name of current day, hour, date, etc. Similarly, you can create folders by inserting date/hour in the title.
