How do I get the top two files from a folder

Hi,

Do can I get the top two files from a folder? The folder can have any number of files.

I have the below query to sort them in descending order. After I do that I need to pick the top two records.

Directory.GetFiles(in_PDFFilesOutputFolder,"*").OrderByDescending(Function(d) New FileInfo(d).LastModifiedDate).ToArray

Directory.GetFiles(in_PDFFilesOutputFolder,"*").OrderByDescending(Function(d) New FileInfo(d).LastModifiedDate).ToArray().Take(2)
