Is there a Class that I can use to say search my documents directory and it would search through all the sub directories and so on finding files? I want to create a list of all files in all directories from a given directory.

My goal is for my app to do house cleaning. A client might have 3 images this month but last month they had 8. It is only displaying 3 of the images now but all 8 are still stored on the phone. I want to remove the unused ones.

I can do it by feeding it the paths to all the clients and all the folders but I thought there might be a Class that I am unaware of that can enumerate through everything?

I used that many times. I did not think / know there was a Method that allows me to enumerate through all of the sub directories and those sub directories.

I will start reading the docs to find it.

Thanks Chown33.

EDIT: Yep, right there in front of my face 'enumeratorAtPath:'. It works perfectly... Thanks again,
