Network drives

Recommended Posts

The service I?ve compiled using Jet is meant to watch a network drive and wait for files to appear. It seems to work fine when watching a local drive but doesn?t seem to want to access a network drive. I?ve tried passing the full pathname (i.e. \\FFITSLS\Temp) and mapping a network drive (i.e. F:\Temp) but neither works (I get an IO Exception thrown with the error message: NULL). I?ve set up the service to run as a user with full control over this temp directory but this has not helped.

Should I be able to write to a network drive and if not can anyone point me at some documentation that proves this so I can show this to the powers that be as proof.
