The TREE command might be more appropriate to this task.

If you don't have write access to the network directory, use something like:

tree > c:\scratch\tree.txt

You might want to add some more switches to DIR:

dir /a:d /s /b

/a:d = directories only
/s = include all subdirectories
/b = bare format

Do tree /? or dir /? for more switches.
