Filesystem and emulator

I want to create a windows app. On app initialize it has to check if a directory exist. If not create said directory. My problem is I - How do i test this condition in emulator. Does emulator support creating directory and sub directory..Do I have to build window app in order to check my code?

I get error.code of 1. when using following code in emulator

   function onDeviceReady() {
      window.requestFileSystem  = window.requestFileSystem || window.webkitRequestFileSystem;
        window.requestFileSystem(LocalFileSystem.PERSISTENT, 0, gotFS, fail);    }

    function fail(error) {
        console.log("failed to get filesystem");
      alert("what is wrong  "+error.code)
    }

    function gotFS(fileSystem) {
        console.log("filesystem got filesystem");
        fileSystem.root.getDirectory("mydir", {
            create : true,
            exclusive : false
        }, dirReady, fail);
    }

    function dirReady(entry) {
        console.log("filesystem in dir ready");
        window.appRootDir = entry;
        console.log(JSON.stringify(window.appRootDir));
    }

You have build the app and install on device to test the app using File API.

Below are some examples for app that use file API to read/write to files: https://github.com/krisrak/html5-cordova-samples
