I want to scan my entire C: drive (or any other drive), including all folders or subdirectories for an specific file type.  I am doing that already with the following code, but I am limited to only one folder that I can select:

Last = -1
    Image = Dir(DirSelect & "*.ICO")
    While Image <> ""
      Last = Last + 1
      If Last >= 0 Then frmImage.lstFileName.AddItem Image
      Image = Dir
    Wend

-----------

DirSelect = PATH

------------

Maybe an API will do it??

The information provided is very valuable.  I don't want to reject the question just because I have not test the code, but reading it looks like it will do what I need.
