Welcome to the Ranch

I have moved you to our C# forum.

Please start by explaining what the logic is behind (for example) remaning files inside a folder.

I find Windows Forms is easy for simple applications, and if your application stays simple, this is fine.

WPF is the way of the future though for user interfaces, and you may want to consider using that if your requirements become more complex.
