2. Delete folder content (not the main one) eg: "\\USER-PC\File\"; the folder "File" no need to deleted, but the content inside is need to deleted.
3. Copy folder content from source to new destination.

No. 1 and 3 is coded. But No. 2 is not yet found. How to delete a directory on Network Shared Folder?

Delete directory code that I use but exception "The network path was not found.":
My.Computer.FileSystem.DeleteDirectory(strDestination, FileIO.DeleteDirectoryOption.DeleteAllContents)

Please assist. TQ

It sounds to me like you don't have delete directory permission to the folder. From the same machine, are you able to delete the folder manually. If you have permission to delete the contents manually, then you should be able to manually iterate through the files and then delete them.


Dim Files() As String = IO.Directory.GetFiles(ThePath)

For Each File In Files
