IsolatedStorageFile.Remove Method ()

 
System_CAPS_noteNote

The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on docs.microsoft.com to see the new experience.

Removes the isolated storage scope and all its contents.

Namespace:   System.IO.IsolatedStorage
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public override void Remove()

Exception Condition
IsolatedStorageException

The isolated store cannot be deleted.

System_CAPS_cautionCaution

This method irrevocably removes the entire scope and all contained directories and files.

If any of the directories or files in the store are in use, the removal attempt for the store fails and the store is marked for removal. Any subsequent attempts to modify the store throw an IsolatedStorageException.

The following code example uses the Remove method to delete the isolated storage file after its contents have been emptied. The How to: Delete Stores in Isolated Storage example also demonstrates the use of the Remove method.

    String[] dirNames = isoFile.GetDirectoryNames("*");
    String[] fileNames = isoFile.GetFileNames("Archive\\*");

    // Delete all the files currently in the Archive directory.

    if (fileNames.Length > 0)
    {
        for (int i = 0; i < fileNames.Length; ++i)
        {
            // Delete the files.
            isoFile.DeleteFile("Archive\\" + fileNames[i]);
        }
        // Confirm that no files remain.
        fileNames = isoFile.GetFileNames("Archive\\*");
    }


    if (dirNames.Length > 0)
    {
        for (int i = 0; i < dirNames.Length; ++i)
        {
            // Delete the Archive directory.
        }
    }
    dirNames = isoFile.GetDirectoryNames("*");
    isoFile.Remove();
}
catch (Exception e)
{
    Console.WriteLine(e.ToString());
}
