    I am trying to do a simple task of moving a PDF file from 1 network location to another.  The application runs as a locally running service under the local administrator account and is trying to move a file from a local directory to one that exists on a mapped drive elsewhere on the network.  Each time I try and execute the moveto command the following error gets generated

     Error – An attempt was made to create a root folder. If the root folder is a removable drive, make sure a disk is inserted.  Type: Xceed.FileSystem.DiskFolder  FullName:

    The code I am using is pretty simple Disk Y: is mapped to a drive on a remote machine and the local admin is authorized to see that drive

    Dim OutputFile As New DiskFile(“Y:\outpdf.pdf”)

    Dim InputFile As New DiskFile(“d:\sys\incoming\inpdf.pdf”)

    Try

          InputFile.MoveTo(OutputFile,

    True)

    Catch ex As Exception

         buf = Err.Description

         Return “Error – “ & buf

    End Try

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    We recreated your scenario on our network and couldn’t reproduce the problem.

    We also traced the code to see where this could happen, and there’s only one scenario in which this exception can be triggered: it is when the Exists property on .NET’s System.IO.DirectoryInfo class tells our component that Y:\ doesn’t exist. The component will then throw the exception you get because it’s illegal to create a root folder.
     
    Could it be that your mapped drive somehow “disconnects” itself and is not available when your application runs?

    I’ve created a mapped drive (Z:) on a Vista machine. 

    I’ve found out that sometimes the mapping is not working when I run a software that create a zip-file on the root of a mapped drive.

    The drive-mapping allways works fine when browsing to it from the windows explorer, but not allways when the software that is using Xceeds zip-component is creating the zip-file on the mapped drive. It’s like it’s gone to sleep or something.
