    I have a directory with thousands of subfolders in them. I want to create a text file in each folder containing the folder name in it. How can I do this in windows?

    Here you go create a file called getDirs.bat and add this content
    Code:
    @ECHO OFF
    for /F "delims=" %%a in ('dir /ad /b /s') do (
       @echo %%~nxa > %%a\test.nfo
    )
    Put it in the folder with all the subfolders and run it. You can make test.nfo to anything you want..

    Is there a way to make it work with folders containing Chinese characters?

    If the folder was written successfully in chinese characters than it should use them. What results are you getting now??

    Well the error closes so fast that I couldn't fully read it but it said something about directory being syntax error. Works fine with english characters

    Use a dir /b/s > dir.lst command line command and paste the links here in a code box.

    I guess that didn't work. Upload the file to a file host and pm me the link.

    **************Update*****************************

    change bat file to this
    Code:
    @ECHO OFF
    chcp 65001 > nul
    for /F "delims=" %%a in ('dir /ad /b /s') do ( @echo %%~nxa > %%a\test.nfo )
