With a special method, we can ensure a directory exists. This can make the program more reliable when it starts—the directory will always exist (in normal situations).
An example. We can almost never be sure that a directory is present. The user may delete it, or it might be lost due to some other interaction on the system.
Further Your installation or upgrade process might have mistakenly removed it, for reasons beyond your control.
However We can try to ensure a path exists, and create it if it doesn't, with a method similar to this one.
public static void EnsurePathExists(string path)
// ... Set to folder path we must ensure exists.
// ... If the directory doesn't exist, create it.
// Fail silently.
static void Main()
// Test the method.
Notes, above program. This method checks to see if the path exists. If the path does not exist, we attempt to create the location—we try to ensure the location exists.
Also The code catches it own exceptions when it cannot do its job. We should use exceptions when code cannot do what it needs to do.
