ok, so I have a console application, and I need this application to be able to search for a file , and the date it last modified, and if it was not modified before before the specified, I need it to send out an email to a specified address with an alert. also i want to make a logfile for everytime this program is used.

i'll be using string 1 file name *.* since the application will be looking for a filename that is supplied correct? I looked at file recursion, but i'm not going to be looking in any specific directory, i don't know how to get it to search the whole local drive.

string two would be the date, how do i get my program to check a date of modification?

the emailing part and log file i can handle. I just don't know how to do the first two, and get them to work together.

any help is much appreciated.

Okay... for now, until you have some more specific problems I am going to point you at some MSDN docs that should help you out.

Google is also your friend.

The bottom line is you have to tell the application to start looking some where. Be it manually or you go and get a list of all the drives on the system.

You are going to need to try a little bit before I help more. I need to see some code of your own and specific questions about the code. I can't do your homework for you.
