This is a method of 'Directory' class, it is used to get the list of sub directories of a given directory.


String [] Directory.GetDirectories(string path);


  1. path - Path of the directory.

Return value:

This method returns the array of strings that contains sub-directories.


using System;
using System.IO;

namespace ConsoleApplication1
    class Program
        static void Main()
            String []dirs = Directory.GetDirectories("D:/Sample");

            Console.WriteLine("Sub directories are:");
            for (int i = 0; i < dirs.Length; i++)



Sub directories are:
        D:/Sample\Blue Color
        D:/Sample\Blue Whale
        D:/Sample\Green color
        D:/Sample\Green vegetable
        D:/Sample\Red color

Note: In above program, we need to remember, when we use "Directory" class, System.IO namespace must be included in the program.
