I am looking for a better way to make this look and work better. The code is generic and I would like to know if I can get someone to help. Thanks.
Can you provide more information on what you are trying to achieve?
You want to make it as a utility class, or more organise, or something else?

Please have a look at

and under File heading. You will find lots of good information.

>>"determines whether the two files are located in the same folder"
First, you need to check whether both of the files are exist

and if they both exists, make sure that their current paths are the same
