How to Make Folder Bomb – Create Up to 10000 Folders within Seconds

You must have heard about ‘Zip Bomb‘- a zip file when extracted, takes tons of Gigabytes of space. Here is another one that is called Folder Bomb. People usually refer to it as a batch virus, but it is not. You can make a Folder Bomb batch virus using simple CMD commands. This is a simple batch file that can create thousands of folders within seconds. But it is harmless to your computer otherwise.

However, it can hang low-configuration computers. So, make sure you don’t run it on any low-config PC to avoid hanging issues. Besides that we also suggest you don’t run this file on your desktop otherwise you will get your desktop filled with thousands of empty folders.
