Hi expert,

In MySql database, I have a binary file name carrier.myd. Since I'll delete this content file, and write new content to this file. To do that, I want to back up my carrier.myd to another file name. If in case something is wrong, I can use this new file name to back up the old data.
In C#, how can I make copy of this carrier.myd to a non existed file name?

Thanks,
JT

Path.GetRandomFilename() will give you a random filename that you could use - the filename it generates will be incredibly unlikely to match any existing file in your directory.
