I'm creating a program which I want to check if the normal and also a hidden folders exist or not and if exist delete it.
Im not sure how you want to accomplish this but...
you can do that by creating a console application which you pass the directory and the switches of the file attributes of the folder name as arguments. Whichever the case is.
you can clarify further by a code segment for better assistance.
I hope the idea helps you.
What I want is to get the hidden file like this:
If My.Computer.FileSystems.DirectoryExist(Dir("C:\test",VbHidden)) Then
But I'm using this code to get the files but it says Access Denied
Dim fFile() As String
fFile = Directory.GetDirectories("C:\", "test", SearchOption.AllDirectories.GetHashCode)
For Each FileName As String In fFile
So the last above code is the code I'm using and I can get the files with it but it fails to get the hidden directories. Sorry for not formating the codes I'm using a mobile phone.
Hi Mr. M, im using VS2013 and this code works fine whether the folder is hidden or not it'll tell you if it exists or not.
Dim x = Microsoft.VisualBasic.FileIO.FileSystem.DirectoryExists("c:\test") If x = True Then MsgBox("Folder exist") Else MsgBox("No folder") End If
As simple as that, Be free to inform me if you need more help.
I hope it works for u. Thanks
