    FileSystemObject

    Work with Drives, Folders and Files.

    Object heirarchy:

    FileSystemObject

    FileSystemObject.Drives

    FileSystemObject.Drives.item

    FileSystemObject.GetFolder
    FileSystemObject.GetFile

    Once a File System Object has been opened you can use Methods and Properties to work with folders and files:

    FileSystemObject Methods:

    .BuildPath(strPath, strFileName)

    .CopyFile(Source, Dest [,Overwrite (True/False)]

    .CopyFolder(Source, Dest [,Overwrite (True/False)]

    .CreateFolder(Path)

    .CreateTextFile(FileName [,Overwrite (True/False) [, Unicode (True/False)]])

    .DeleteFile(FileSpec, Force (True/False))

    .DeleteFolder(FileSpec, Force (True/False))

    .DriveExists(strDrive) (True/False)

    .FileExists(strFile) (True/False)

    .FolderExists(strFolder) (True/False)

    .GetAbsolutePathName(strPath) - Returns a string with the full drive, path, and file names: Drive:\Path\To\File.Ext

    .GetBaseName(strPath) - Returns a string with the file name, without the extension: File

    .GetDrive(strDrive) - Returns an object referring to a drive

    .GetDriveName(strDrive) - Returns a string referring to a drive. Drive:

    .GetExtensionName(strPath) - Returns a string referring to the extension of the file. Ext

    .GetFile(strPath) - Returns an object referring to a file.

    .GetFileName(strPath) - Returns a string referring to a file. File.Ext

    .GetFolder(strPath) - Returns an object referring to the path.

    .GetParentFolderName(strPath) - Returns a string referring to the path. \Path\To\

    .GetSpecialFolderName(FolderType) FolderType=SystemFolder/TemporaryFolder/WindowsFolder

    .GetStandardStream(Type [,Unicode (True/False)])

    .GetTempName()

    .MoveFile(Source, Dest)

    .MoveFolder(Source, Dest)

    .OpenTextFile(strFile [,IOMode (0=append, 1=Read, 2=Write) [,Create (True/False) [,Format (0=Ascii,-1=Unicode,-2=default)]]])

    Drive Properties:

    AvailableSpace, DriveLetter, DriveType, FileSystem, FreeSpace,IsReady,

    Path, RootFolder, SerialNumber, ShareName, TotalSize, VolumeName

    File Properties:

    Attributes, DateCreated, DateLastAccessed, DateLastModified,Drive,

    Name, ParentFolder, Path, ShortName, ShortPath, Size, Type

    File Methods: .copy, .Delete, .Move, .OpenAsTextStream

    Folder Properties:

    Attributes, DateCreated, DateLastAccessed, DateLastModified,Drive,

    Files, IsRootFolder, Name, ParentFolder, Path,

    ShortName, ShortPath, Size, SubFolders, Type

    Folder Methods: .copy, .CreateTextFile, .Delete, .Move

    Examples

    Create a text file:

    Dim objFS, objFile
    Set objFS = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    Set objFile = objFS.CreateTextFile("C:\work\demo.txt")
    objFile.WriteLine("some sample text")

    Open an existing file:

    Dim objFS, objFile

    Set objFS = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

    Set objFile = objFS.GetFile("C:\Work\Sample.xls")

    WScript.Echo objFile.DateCreated & objFile.Name

    Check drive space:

    Dim objFS, objDrive, objDriveCount

    Set objFS = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

    Set objDriveCount = objFS.Drives

    Set objDrive = objFS.Drives("C")

    WScript.Echo objDriveCount & " Free Space " & objDrive.AvailableSpace
