How to Make a directory list from your hard drive

I have a hard drive dock where I can swap in or out different WD Green Sata drives. Mostly 2 Terabyte drives. This have my movie collection. I need a way t keep track of what movies are on what drive. This is easy with some old fashion DOS.

dir e: /b/p > Movie1.txt

e: is where the movies are

movie1.txt indicates the movie disk 1 directory being written to movie1.txt

run cmd

paste in the first line of this email, then enter

So there is a separate text file for each movie drive showing the directory names that tell me what is contained on each drive.
