Visual Basic Concepts
When programming in Windows, it's very important to have the ability to add, move, change, create, or delete folders (directories) and files, and get information about and manipulate drives.
Visual Basic allows you to process drives, folders, and files in two different ways: through traditional methods such as the Open statement, Write#, and so forth, and through a new set of tools, the File System Object (FSO) object model.
