Folders Collection Object
Microsoft Scripting Runtime
The Folders collection object is a container for Folder objects. Normally, you’d expect to access a single object from the collection of that object; for example, you’d expect to access a Folder object from the Folders collection object. However, things are the other way around here: you access the Folders collection object from an instance of a Folder object. This is because the first Folder object you instantiate from the Drive object is a Root Folder object, and from it you instantiate a subfolders collection. You can then instantiate other Folder and subfolder objects to navigate through the drive’s filesystem.
The Folders collection is a subfolder of any Folder object. For instance, the top-level Folders collection (representing all of the folders in the root directory of a particular drive) can be can be instantiated as follows:
Dim oFS, oFolders Set oFS = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") Set oFolders = oFS.Drives("C").RootFolder.SubFolders
The Folders collection object is one of the objects in the File System object model; see the File System object model entry for an overview of the model, including the library reference needed to access it.
