I'm looking for a way to store the folder and file information for an entire disk. I don't want to store the files themselves, just the info you'd see in windows explorer.

You mean just file and folder names and each location.

If so you could use serialization, you would to make a collection class that support serialization and child nodes like the treeview.

i think you could inherit from the TreeViewCollection and make changes in order to serialize it.

you could write this to an xml file and then deserialize it.

in your app.
