Based on what I see in the documentation, you should be able to use either the Directory class or DirectoryInfo class to determine this.

e.g.

DirectoryInfo dir = new DirectoryInfo(@"path\to\folder");
int fileCount = dir.GetFiles().Length;

// OR

fileCount = Directory.GetFiles(@"path\to\folder").Length;


There's no perceived benefit from using LINQ to get this information as you'd have to involve these classes anyway.
