scenario is there is a drive and in that drive there is a files which is automatically created in every 4 mints so i fetch this date time in in this code

now i want to insert data in db that when any file not created within 4 mint then i want to insert data in db

data is sent to db but problem is this data not send when 4 mint is over and i want this condition

What I have tried:

                   string abc= "";
                   abc= ConfigurationManager.AppSettings.Get("abc");

                   DateTime dattme= File.GetLastAccessTime(abc);

                   Console.WriteLine("the last access time for  c {0}", dattme);

                   if(DateTime.Now.Minute > 4)
                       DataClasses1DataContext db = new DataClasses1DataContext();
                       tbl_OutBox tb = new tbl_OutBox();
                       tb.ToSIM_No = "+234234324";
                       tb.ToText = "Check please";
                       tb.FromSIM_No = "+234234324";
                       tb.FromText = "Check please";


               catch (Exception e)
                   Console.WriteLine("The process failed: {0}", e.ToString());

how to solve

I think you have forgotten the little detail of subtracting two times from each other.
Right now you are just taking an arbitrary time and check the Minute part.

TimeSpan timeDiff = DateTime.Now - File.GetLastAccessTime(abc);
if (timeDiff.TotalMinutes > 4)

Thanks Sergey.
Try something like
if(DateTime.Now.Subtract(dattme).Minutes > 4)

Subtract gives you an object of Timespan class and u can check the minutes in it

The problem with using the Minutes property is that if the time difference is, for example, 1 hour and 1 minute, the Minutes property will be equal to 1.
So then the if statement will not be entered, even though the file is 61 minutes old.

Timespan TotalMinutes property should address this, rather than using Minutes?
