I am writing a C# application using VS2010 and .Net Framework 4.0.

What statement would you code to delete all files in the following directory that have a file extension of *.TIF ?

I use the following value for the directory path:

const string TARGET_DIR_IN = @"\\v\region\na\control\dev\W\data\Test1\";

Hi,
pls try

DirectoryInfo di = new DirectoryInfoTARGET_DIR_IN);
FileInfo[] files = di.GetFiles("*.TIF")
                     .Where(p => p.Extension == ".TIF").ToArray();
foreach (FileInfo file in files)
    try
    {
        file.Attributes = FileAttributes.Normal;
        File.Delete(file.FullName);
    }
    catch { }

Or simply LINQ:

Directory.EnumerateFiles(TARGET_DIR_IN, "*.TIF")
         .ToList()
         .ForEach(File.Delete);

Correct code
DirectoryInfo di = new DirectoryInfo(TARGET_DIR_IN);
FileInfo[] files = di.GetFiles("*.TIF")
                     .Where(p => p.Extension == ".TIF").ToArray();
foreach (FileInfo file in files)
    try
    {
        file.Attributes = FileAttributes.Normal;
        File.Delete(file.FullName);
    }
    catch { }
