More information:
I've often looked for Windows Explorer-type controls that would list the directories on a computer. I found one, but its downside was that it tried to build your computers ENTIRE directory tree on load. That can cause problems if you have mapped drives on a slow network. So I set out to build my own that at least closely resembled his and loaded the directories as you clicked through the hierarchy (like windows explorer does).

A reference to the Microsoft Scripting Runtime is required! (Since we use FSO. It's already referenced in the project, which is heavly commented)
