Is there a way to ignore the case in the below line like using compare options.ignore case  or anything???
Becaue the file name could either be in upper or lower case..I have the line of code to grab lower case ...but I just want to change it so that it ignores case.....how should I change this??

Thanks!!
if (_config.Encrypted && fileName.Substring(fileName.LastIndexOf(".") + 1).ToLower() == "gpg")

The Equals() method of the string class has some options of interest:
fileName.Substring(fileName.LastIndexOf(".") + 1).Equals("gpg", StringComparison.CurrentCultureIgnoreCase)
 
// And if you import the System.IO namespace you could do
 
Path.GetExtension(filename).Equals("gpg", StringComparison.CurrentCultureIgnoreCase)

The latter part should have read:

// And if you import the System.IO namespace you could do
 
Path.GetExtension(filename).Equals(".gpg", StringComparison.CurrentCultureIgnoreCase)

as GetExtension includes the dot (.)
