A Fast Way to Create a Large Folder Hierarchy in SharePoint

Creating a large folder hierarchy in SharePoint Document Library using Microsoft's standard GUI takes a lot of time—which is unnecessary. Here's an easier way:
  1. Create the folder hierachy first on the hard disk.
  2. In Internet Explorer, select Open from File Menu.
  3. Provide just the link of the document library—for example, http://servername/DocLibName, without incuding allitems.aspx.
  4. Check Open for the Web Folder option and press OK.
  5. Then, simply paste the folders!
