Checking if a file exists.

var exists = FileSystem.Local.GetFile("file.txt").Exists;

Read all text from a file.

var content = FileSystem.Local.GetFile("file.txt").ReadAllText();

Asynchronously write the text to a file.

await FileSystem.Local.GetFile("file.txt").WriteAllTextAsync("test content");

Rename the file.


Move and overwrite the file.

var source = FileSystem.Local.GetFile("a/test2.txt");
var destination = FileSystem.Local.GetFile("b/test2.txt");
source.Move(destination, true);

Move the directory to a new location.

var source = FileSystem.Local.GetDirectory("a/c");
var destination = FileSystem.Local.GetDirectory("b"); 
source.MoveTo(destination); // b/c/*

Restore a copy of the file.

var file = FileSystemWithHistorySupport.Create().GetFile("file.txt");
var fileVersion = file.GetHistoryVersions(DateTime.Now.Date.AddDays(-7)).FirstOrDefault();
fileVersion.Copy(file, true) ;

Synchronization of directory contents between file systems.

var ftpFileSystem = FtpFilesystem.Create(/*parameters*/);
var localFileSystem = FileSystem.Local;
var directory1 = localFileSystem.GetDirectory("directory1");
var directory2 = localFileSystem.GetDirectory("directory2");
directory1.SyncWith(directory2, FileSystemSynchronizeMode.OneWay);
