Analyze subfolders

Hello friends,
@rkelchuri, @Ninett_Panfir, @Rammohan91, @balupad14, @Florent_Salendres, @vvaidya, @Palaniyappan, @ClaytonM, @vvaidya, @lakshman, @Dave

I need to count all the possile subfolders in a folder.
It is a variable number, not fixed.
I need to analyze the content of each subfolders (analyze files and transfer or move), the numer they are.
How can I implement that?
Thank you,
Cami

Fine
use a string array variable like this
arr_outfile = Directory.GetFiles(yourfoldername,SearchOption.AllDirectories)
now this arr_outfile variable will have the list of file names in all the subfolders as well
–to get the count we can use
arr_outfile.Count.ToString

@CamiCat
To retrieve subfolders you can assign…
arrVar=Directory.GetDirectories(YourMainFolderPath)

then use this variable in for each activity and then use delete file activity to delete subfolders.
