FILE INFO.

How can I add only files that already exits and file that just created in Listbox? I have set Timer on this sub.

Dim XDir As DirectoryInfo = New DirectoryInfo(Trim("" & Me.txtPathX.Text & ""))

Dim ExtraCount As Integer

Dim myfileInfo as fileinfo

For Each myfileInfo In XDir.GetFiles

ExtraCount = XDir.GetFiles.Length

Me.lblCountExtra.Text = ExtraCount.ToString

Me.ListBox2.Items.Add(myfileInfo.CreationTime)  -------------------- This line just keepS adding the same file(Time it is created) over and over



Next

If ExtraCount = Nothing Then

Me.lblCountExtra.Text = CStr(0)

End If
