Create a folder in remote server using c# code

Create a folder in remote server.

Make sure that you have write permission on remote location you have specified. This example also creates a file under that folder.

public class CreateFileOrFolder
static void Main()
string folderName = "\\\\domain\\site\\folderlocation\\foldername";


// Create a new file name. This example generates
// a random string.
string newFileName = System.IO.Path.GetRandomFileName();

// Combine the new file name with the path
newPath = System.IO.Path.Combine(folderName, newFileName);
