Go to a command prompt and type Dir Drive:\folder >C:\DirList.txt

This will produce a text file in C: that can then be printed.

You will have to do this for each folder if there are multiple folders.

As stated by StuartS the DIR command can be used to produce a list of files. You can use the /s option to do a whole partition. You may also use an extension to separate the files by type. You may not want to print all the files. My drive has several hundred thousand files.
