displaying older files in a directory

The below displays all files in the MyPath directory, but how would I modify it to only display files whose datetime stamp is older than 24 hours?

static void Main(string[] args)
  string[] files = System.IO.Directory.GetFiles(MyPath);

  foreach(string file in files)
    string FileName = Path.GetFileName(file);

Add an IF statement inside of your FOR loop that is something along these lines:

if (File.GetCreationTime(file) < DateTime.Now.AddHours(-24))
