This post from Microsoft shows how you can list the directory contents. You can use that with the  code you already have to download all files in the driectory; http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms229716.aspx

Thanks Abel!
I am able to do this using the above link and some research. After getting the file list, I binded this list(file names) to a grid view and allowed the user to select a file name. I downloaded all the files that were selected using this filename.
