Print the directories of a volume

Use the old Dos command tree
Run cmd.exe
tree > c:\tree.txt to save it to a text file. If you just open that up in notepad the characters might look all garbled, but if you open it in MS Word and say to use DOS Encoding, then everything should look just fine.
tree /a >d:\tree.txt
The /f flag on tree displays all of the contents of the subfolders as well.
tree /f > d:\tree.txt 
To just tree from a certain directory, you have to type
tree [directory name]
not just run the program from that directory.

Use the dir command, pipe it to a file, and print the file.
The /d switch only displays the filenames and directory names of Z: (directories in []'s).
The /s switch breaks everything down and displays all of the contents of all of the subdirectories.
dir /d /s Z:\ > X:\mydir.txt
Use the screen capture utility HyperSnap.
You can capture a region of the screen by dragging a boundary area with your mouse, or you can get the whole listing by capturing with its autoscrolling feature (a window larger than 1 screenful will automatically scroll the capture area for you). 
PrintFolder - when it's installed, you seee PrintFolder as one of the options when you right-click on a directory in Windows Explorer. Does folders and subfolders
SysExporter, too, is a super-useful program.
Any serious drive reorganization effort will also be helped by SpaceMonger. You can see at a glance where all the big stuff is hiding.

The JR Directory Printer Utility allows you to print a listing of every file contained within a directory and/or subdirectory(ies).

The result displayed in NotePad or default text editor as "dirprint.txt" file. This file is created in "JR Directory Printer" installtion folder, each time you click "Start" button.
Check Recurse Sub-directories option to see a complete list of all subdirectories and all files in all directories.
The Lowercase Filename option will force all file names into lowercase regardless of the actual file name.
Dos style filename option will limit the file name length within 8 chars.
Display Sub-directories will result in a list of all subdirectories contained under the selected directory along with a list of all individual files contained under the root directory.  It will not list all subdirectories or individual files contained in the main subdirectories.  To see a complete list of all subdirectories and all files in all directories, you would check the Recurse Sub-directories option and click on the Start button. This would rewrite the"dirprint.txt" file using the new options.
You can limit length file names so that they fits properly in list. By default this value is 35 chars.
You can check/uncheck Display Size, DateTime and Attributes option to list/unlist the file size, modified date/time and file attributes (a - Archives, r - Read Only, s - System, h - Hidden).
