Look in the System.IO namespace.
Especially System.IO.File and System.IO.Directory.
These are used to inspect the file system.

If I read you right, you want to get at the contents of a ZIP file (compressed folder) without extracting them first. Yes? If so, you might look into using SharpZipLib.

Looking at the DetNetZip Library Examples you probably want to do something like this.

// open zip file given in OpenFileDialog
  using (ZipFile zip = ZipFile.Read(op.FileName))
  {
    foreach (ZipEntry e in zip)
    {
      MemoryStream outputStream = new MemoryStream();
      e.Extract(outputStream); // write file contents to memory stream
      outputStream.Position = 0; // reset stream pointer to start
      // do what you want with the stream data.
    }
  }

[Edit] Thanks to both sadhawan and gusano79 for introducing me to these Zip libraries.
