Siva, here you go:

global gHierList,gMainFolder,gBaseLevels

on mouseUp
  put "" into gHierList
  answer folder "Pick a folder you want to walk:"
  if it = "" then exit mouseUp
  set the itemDel to "/"
  put it into gMainFolder
  put the number of items of gMainFolder into gBaseLevels
  directoryWalk gMainFolder
  put gHierList into field 1
end mouseUp

on directoryWalk whatFolder
  set the itemDel to "/"
  if "(2)" is in pDel then put 2 into numSpcs
  else put 4 into numSpcs
  put "                                        " into spcPad
  set the directory to whatFolder
  put the files into temp
  sort temp
  repeat with x = 1 to the number of lines of temp
    put whatFolder & "/" & (line x of temp) into line (the number of lines
of gHierList)+1 of gHierList
  end repeat
  put the directories into tDirList
  sort tDirList
  repeat with x =  2 to the number of lines of tDirList
    directoryWalk (whatFolder & "/" & (line x of tDirList))
  end repeat
end directoryWalk


Enjoy!
