GetFiles returns an array
CSTr expects a singular item, and returns a string

Before performing the CStr, you need to loop through all of the items that getfiles returns, and Cstr each one individually

Hope you understand the error
you are trying to store an Array of Strings in a String
use the following instead

Files = String.Join(" " ,dirLocalp.GetFiles(MTdir))

This will join all the array elements and form one single String and store in the variable Files
