Its not path problem , i got error in code when i am using it if the target machine is WM5.0 and the same code accepted if the target machine is PC .
So I  think some missing import names i must use or we can't use the same thing under compact dot net

>>System.IO.File.Delete("\Storage Card\Tepm\YourFile.txt")

that depends on programming language. In C# it would be:
System.IO.File.Delete(@"\Storage Card\Temp\YourFile.txt");
or
System.IO.File.Delete("\\Storage Card\\Temp\\YourFile.txt");

also there is a typo in Tepm folder ;)

Thanks to Mr . jaime & Mr. Mikal
My mistake that I was using :   My.Computer.FileSystem.DeleteFile()    instead of  
System.IO.File.Delete("\Storage Card\Tepm\YourFile.txt")
Best regards
