Hi

I use the code below to delete files on my server via FTP. How can I tell if the file exists before I attempt to delete it? I am using vb.net 2008

strFileName = "ftp://" & strFTPAddress & "/" & strFTPImageFolder & "/" & intInvNum & "-1.jpg"
            Dim clsRequest1 As System.Net.FtpWebRequest = DirectCast(System.Net.WebRequest.Create(strFileName), System.Net.FtpWebRequest)
            clsRequest1.Credentials = New System.Net.NetworkCredential(strFTPUserName, strFTPPassword)
            clsRequest1.Method = System.Net.WebRequestMethods.Ftp.DeleteFile
            Dim ftpResp1 As FtpWebResponse = clsRequest1.GetResponse

Thanks

Nick Steele
