  • What are you looking to do with these files?  It sounds like you might simply want to use a picker.

    NOTE: If I ask for code, please provide something that I can drop directly into a project and run (including XAML), or an actual application project. I'm trying to help a lot of people, so I don't have time to figure out weird snippets with undefined objects and unknown namespaces.

  • The pickers won't do FTP, just file access over SMB.
