    Java.nio.file - Copying files

    You can't copy a folder, thats why it generates an exception (you are trying to copy a folder using a copy file function).
    You probably need to list all the files inside that folder and copy one by one

    Copy folder or file names as a text file

    Looking for a program which grabs folders\files and converts it into text

    Hey guys,

    I'm looking for a program which lets you pick a folder and grabs all the files\folders names and puts it in a text file.

    I'm not sure if that makes sense, sorry if it doesn't.
