C# VS2008 Windows App: Get error when running method twice
"A column named 'Name' already belongs to this DataTable"

Is there an easy way to avoid getting this when I let the user crun the method twice? Here is the code that errors when repeated. I understand the nature of the message looking for best "practice"\work around.

            foreach (FileInfo file in files)
            {
                DataRow dr = dt.NewRow();
                //get details of each file using file object
                dr[Name] = file.FullName;
                dr[Size] = file.Length;
                dr[Ext] = file.Extension;
                dr[Created] = file.LastWriteTime;

                dt.Rows.Add(dr);

Hi Karl66

Try the attached code:
PerformanceCounter pc = new PerformanceCounter();
 
public Process GetProcess(string hostname, string processName)
{
    Process[] ps = Process.GetProcessesByName(processName, hostname);
 
    if (ps.Length == 0)
        return null;
    else
        return ps[0];
}
 
public bool IsProcessAlive(string hostname, string processName)
{
    Process p = GetProcess(hostname, processName);
 
    if (p == null)
    {
        return false;
    }
    else
    {
        return !p.HasExited;
    }
}
 
public string GetProcessCPU(string hostname, string processName)
{
    string str = "";
 
    pc.CategoryName = "Process";
    pc.CounterName = "% Processor Time";
    pc.InstanceName = processName;
    pc.MachineName = hostname;
 
    try
    {
        str = pc.NextValue().ToString();
    }
    catch
    {
        str = "Error";
    }
 
    return str;
}
 
public string GetProcessRAM(string hostname, string processName)
{
    Process p = GetProcess(hostname, processName);
 
    if (p == null)
    {
        return "Error";
    }
    else
    {
        return p.PagedMemorySize64.ToString();
    }
}
