A file drop list is a collection of strings containing path information for files.

A file drop list is stored in a data object as a String array. This method converts filePaths to a String array before adding it to the data object.

To retrieve a file drop list from the data object, first use the ContainsFileDropList method to determine whether the data object contains data in that format before retrieving it with the GetFileDropList method.
