    for dir in `ls ${Location[$index]}`
        do
          if [ -d ${Location[$index]}/$dir ]; then
            echo -n "Rebuilding index for ${Location[$index]}/$dir....."
            createrepo --update ${Location[$index]}/$dir
            echo "Done"
          else
            echo "Not a valid folder : ${Location[$index]}/$dir"
