Hi,

How can I access a known network drive and read all the files in the drive?
Under this directory
\\Server\Directory1\
I have several files...text1.xml, text2.xml...text10.xml
How can I get all the files in this network drive?
Also, how can I change folders in the same network drive?

I've search all the articles in experts-exchange.com...but I still have no clue how can I make this work.  Please help me~~

You can get a list (string[]) of the files as simply as calling, System.IO.Directory.GetFiles(@"\\Server\Directory1").  What would you like to do with the files?

Everything you need to do this can be found in the System.IO, and the System.Text.RegularExpressions namespaces.  Here is a quick example on opening each of the files in that directory:

  foreach (string file in System.IO.Directory.GetFiles(@"\\Server\Directory1"))
  {
    string data;
    using (System.IO.StreamReader reader = new System.IO.StreamReader(file))
      data = reader.ReadToEnd();

    //Work with "data" here.
  }

You can do this using the System.IO.File.Delete(string) method.
