List all files on disk #

Even as root, ls and find produced too many errors ("Permission denied", "Not a directory", "directory causes a cycle", "Input/output error", etc) when attempting to list all files on disk. Tree worked a treat:

$ tree -a -i -f / > filesystemlist.txt

 -a All files are listed.
 -i Don't print indentation lines.
 -f Print the full path prefix for each file.
See also Tree for Windows and LINUX Recursively list all files in a directory including files in symlink directories.
