I don't think that what you are interested in doing is very hard. There is a low-level function in LabVIEW that will list the files and subdirectories in a starting path. Does this need to be done recursively to any depth? If so the is a built-in function that will list all files and folders under a given starting directory.

More confusing is the issue of displaying the results. Could you perhaps draw sort of a mock-up of what you wanting to create? You mention icons, what sort of icons? General symbols to distinguish between files and folders, or unique icons like in Windows explorer?

If you just need to list the files or folder inside a main folder, then list folder will gives you proper output.
Else if you need to get list of all folders,sub folders,and files inside a root directory you can use recursive path functionality it's like (*.*) functionality in Windows

As Mike suggested share us the code you tried and brief us more about icons that you are referring.
