I need help in c# about file scanning in c#. I want to scan all files or from specific path in background if application is in running mode. Scanning should start after every 10 min.......

I did a quick google and found quite a lot of info on running background processes, Have a look at the two links below and see if they help at all (i typed "running background processes in C#" into google)

So....do you understand how threads, threadpools, or background workers work? Do you understand file IO and parsing? Or do you just want us to do the project for you (lol)?

This isn't a software writing service. What have you done so far? What problems or errors are you getting?

What do you intend to do during the scan?
If you are looking for changes then you could use a FileSystemWatcher to do the "scanning" for you.

actually i want to scan my files in a directory after every 10 min.... thay why my own file allocation update its information.... because when a file is moved from one folder to other or it delete then my file allocation table must be updated for every information..... so i want a abackground process or any exe which run in every 10 min and update my file allocation table....

Ok, then a FileSystemWatcher will do just that for you. (Google it)
