File/Folder Recursion

In R5 you are able to use OLE in LotusScript. If you have the "Microsoft
Scripting Runtime" refernce on your machine you will be able to use the
following code to recurse through the directory structure on a machine to
identify and/or modify files and folders. I wrote this with the intention of
finding all *.ft folders on a server and logging their size. I was then able
to determine how much space was being utilized by full text indexes in Notes.
Dim FSO As Variant
Dim Files As Variant
Dim SubFolders As Variant
Dim initFolder As Variant
Dim TextFile As Variant

Sub Initialize
Set FSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set initFolder = FSO.GetFolder("C:\")
Set SubFolders = initFolder.Subfolders
Set Files = initFolder.Files
Set TextFile = FSO.CreateTextFile("C:\RecurseTest.txt")'This will create a
text file on your C: drive

If SubFolders.Count > 0 Then
Forall x In SubFolders
End Forall
End If
End Sub

Function Recurse(CurFolder As Variant)
Dim Sub_RFolders As Variant
Dim RFolders As Variant
Set RFolders = CurFolder.SubFolders

Forall y In RFolders
Set Sub_RFolders = y.SubFolders
If Sub_RFolders.Count > 0 Then
End If
End Forall
End Function
