error: Path not found

I get a path not found error on lines 46 and 62 when I run the code below. I've had my declarations checked and still can't locate the error. The program compiles so I believe there is a problem with my logic.

Private Sub cmdYesD_Click()
    'Dim fso As New FileSystemObject
    Dim File1 As File
    Dim Folder1 As Folder
    Dim FileCollection As Folder
    Dim strRegion2 As String
    Dim intDays2 As Integer
    Dim intDelete As Integer
    Dim intDeleteFolder As Integer
    Dim TotalFiles As Integer
    Dim ProcessedFiles As Integer
    strRegion2 = Me.txtRegionConf.Text
    intDays2 = Me.txtInputDays.Text
    ProcessedFiles = 0
    intDelete = 0
    intDeleteFolder = 0
'Deletes Files
    If fso.FolderExists("Z:\" & strRegion2 & "\Customer\Output") Then
        Set FileCollection = fso.GetFolder("Z:\" & strRegion2 & "\Customer\Output")
'Set progress bar maximum to files + folders
        TotalFiles = FileCollection.Files.Count + FileCollection.SubFolders.Count
        Me.ProgressBar1.Max = TotalFiles
'search for and delete files
        Call Cleanfiles(FileCollection)
        Call Cleanfolders(FileCollection)
  MsgBox "Complete.  Deleted: " & vbCrLf & intDelete & " files and " & vbCrLf & intDeleteFolders & " Folders"
        Call RegionError
    End If
End Sub
Private Sub Cleanfiles(ByRef FileCollection As Object)
    For Each File1 In FileCollection.Files
'Move Progressbar
            ProcessedFiles = ProcessedFiles + 1
            Me.ProgressBar1.Value = ProcessedFiles
        Do Until TotalFiles
                If DateDiff("d", FileDateTime(File1), Now) >= intDays2 Then
                    fso.DeleteFile (File1)
                    intDelete = intDelete + 1
                End If
End Sub
Public Sub Cleanfolders(ByRef FileCollection As Object)
    For Each Folder1 In FileCollection.SubFolders
'Move Progressbar
            ProcessedFiles = ProcessedFiles + 1
            Me.ProgressBar1.Value = ProcessedFiles
        Do Until TotalFiles
                If DateDiff("d", Folder1.DateCreated, Now) >= intDays2 Then
                    fso.DeleteFolder (Folder1)
                    intDeleteFolder = intDeleteFolder + 1
                End If
End Sub
Public Sub RegionError()
    'If fso.FolderExists("Z:\" & strRegion2 & "\Customer\Output") = False Then
                    MsgBox "Error: Region not Found"
                'End If
End Sub
