Creating a relative path to known folder

I'm looking for a way to make a list of files from a relative filepath.

So far I've come up with this:

string[] filePaths = Directory.GetFiles(@"~\Images\Uploaded\");

But I get an error which says that the path doesn't exist, although it does.


If it is an ASP.Net application you can use Server.MapPath to convert relative path to absolute path

string folderPath = Server.MapPath("~\Images\Uploaded\");

From the SO answer

You can use Directory.GetcurrentDirectory to get the current directory, and Path.Combine to combine with relative path to form absolute path and get the files from this absolute path.

Try following

string[] filePaths = Directory.GetFiles(Path.Combine(Directory.GetCurrentDirectory(),@"\Images\Uploaded\"));

or just use the relative path without using ~

string[] filePaths = Directory.GetFiles(@"\Images\Uploaded\"));

I have not tried it myself, but I'm curious about Directory.GetFiles(VirtualPathUtility.GetDirectory(@"~\Images\Uploaded\"));
