I believe what you are asking is:
System.IO.File.WriteAllText("C:\path\to\output\file.rtf", this.richTextBox1.RTF);

No, I don't believe so. You could create it though:
string folder = "C:\\path\\to\\output";
if (!System.IO.Directory.Exists(folder)) System.IO.Directory.CreateDirectory(folder);
System.IO.File.WriteAllText(folder + "\\file.rtf", this.richTextBox1.RTF);

Open in new window
