I have one more question on os.walk()
For some reason while this function working on my local folders I walks
through them in a randomly manner. However when I run the same script on a
network mounted drive (using the same directory structure) it walks through
them in an alphabetically sorted order.
Have you encountered a similar behaviour before?
