Files and Folders


Files are one of the most important thing on any computer. Without them you could not store any data, or preferences. A computer would be useless without them. Folders are just important, allowing you to add structure to your hard disk. In VB, there are many functions which allow you to edit, create, rename and move files and folders, but the MSDN library does not do a very good of explaining them. This tutorial intends to cover the basics of these functions, and will hopefully do better!.
