I am trying to write a program that will go through two different directories.  It will go through the first directory and do some file processing.  After it does the processing for the first folder, I need to go through a second set of folders.  Is it better or is in the best practice to create two different file system object?  Currently I am using two but wanted to make sure I am following the best coding practice.

      Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
      Set objFolder = objFSO.GetFolder(strErrorDir)
      Set colFiles = objFolder.Files

      Set objFSOS = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
      Set objFolderS = objFSOS.GetFolder(strSuccDir)
      Set colFilesS = objFolderS.Files

Thanks

Creating multiple instances do not makes problem...

You can also first unload a variable then reset it...

Like:

 Set objFSO = Nothing

 Set objFSO =  CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

Creating multiple variables has its disadvantages:
1. It takes more memory space.
2. It takes time to instantiate a new FSO variable.
3. More code needs to be written to define and set variables to nothing.

This job can be easily done through one variable.
