We desire to get all the drives and folders off a server, but afraid of the processing (CPU) power that will be used. Is there a way to only go get the drives/folder one time, then only get them again if something has changed to avoid using up so much CPU. Also, is there a way to export out the folder structure to an xml list so we can insert it into an SQL server with a data type of xml?
we are using vb.net (vs 2010) if anyone desires to show code. One note, we are NOT interested in getting any files, just the drives and folders
