Get number of files in a folder (and it's subfolders etc.)

hey everyone,

so i want to get the number of files that are in a specific folder (and all it’s subfolders).

i get that by using this.


is there also another way to get this answer without using “get folder info” activity?

kind regards!

Yes we can use expressions like this

Using assign activity

arr_filepath = Directory.GetFiles(”your main folderpath” ,”*.*”, SearchOption.AllDirectories)

Where arr_filepath is a variable of type type array of strings

You can use this
in assign activity

Int_Count = System.IO.Directory.GetFiles(“yourFolderPath”,“.”,searchOption.AllDirectories).Length

Hi @muehlbauer157

Can you try with this expression


SearchOption.AllDirectories - Used for searching all the directories in the mentioned folder path

Hi @muehlbauer157

- Assign (folderPath = "C:\YourFolderPath")
- Assign (fileCount = 0)

- Invoke Code
  - Code:
    Directory.GetFiles(folderPath, "*", SearchOption.AllDirectories).Count
  - Result: fileCount

- Now, the fileCount variable contains the count of files in the specified folder and subfolders.

Hope it helps

this works thanks! :slight_smile:

Can u click on activity and share the error that shows as a pop up
