If you are looking to get the create date for a file, you can use the code below:

Dim fileData As FileInfo = My.Computer.FileSystem.GetFileInfo(strFilePath) Debug.Print(fileData.CreationTime.ToString)

I have also created a complete application, which exposes all the file information available in the FileInfo object.
