Does this line of code:

m_LogFile = New StreamWriter(m_LogFolder & m_LogFileName)

overwrite the file if the file already exists? If so, how would you open "to append" instead of overwriting?

Add True as value for the second argument.

m_LogFile = New StreamWriter(m_LogFolder & m_LogFileName, True)

StreamWriter = New StreamWriter("myfile.txt") 'creates a new text file
StreamWriter = New StreamWriter("C:\append.txt", True) 'append lines of text to a file.
