I was making a password manager , and i want to save files as new file types (they are text files (encrypted with my own encryption) and new extension ".dbz") so i can create file.
using :_
My.Computer.FileSystem.WriteAllText(String.Concat(location, "try.dbz"), final, True)

but i have problem that it keeps adding my new data to original data while writing , i want it to clear all data in file first and then write new data

how can i do that , or can i simply delete old file with code and then create a new file again
thank you

One of the languages capable of using WPF is VB.NET, but it hardly can be called "VB".

You could use a FileStream and use the Truncate method, then write new data to it.
