Recursively copying folders

I know I need to use recursion for this but I always struggle with it.

I have a FolderItem called source. It may or may not have any number of folders and files within. The folders may or may not contain more files and folders.

All I want to do is replicate the folder structure of source into a FolderItem called output. I don’t want to copy the files, just create new empty folders with the same names and structure as in the source FolderItem.

Example source folder contents:

-- blog ----personal ------test.html -- about ----index.html

Desired output folder contents:

blog --personal about

Does anyone have any code they could share to solve this? has the code for recursively traversing a directory (the CopyFileOrFolder example) just modify it to not actually copy anything and only create directories.

      CopyFiles(current, newdir) // recurse into it

should probably be

      CopyDirs(current, newdir) // recurse into it

The example @Tim Parnell links to helped a lot. Here’s what I came up with (for future use):

[code]Private Sub CopyFolder(source as Xojo.IO.FolderItem, destination as Xojo.IO.FolderItem)
/// -----------------------------------------------------------------------
’ Used to recursively copy a folder structure
/// -----------------------------------------------------------------------

Dim f, newDestination As Xojo.IO.FolderItem

If source.IsFolder Then
newDestination = destination.Child(source.Name)
For Each f in source.Children
If f.IsFolder Then CopyFolder(f, newDestination)
Next f
End If
End Sub[/code]

Thanks everybody.
