Enumerates all the files on a computer. This is a demonstration script; if actually run, it could take an hour or more to complete, depending on the number of files on the computer. Depending on the number of files and on available memory, this script could also fail before finishing.

This script was tested using Python 2.2.2-224 for Microsoft Windows, available from ActiveState.
