I got a file open error trying to access a file on a windows network drive.
julia said it could not open the file because the file does not exist, however the file DOES exist.
Now, the first time this happened windows was also giving me weirdness saying that the file didn’t exist when i tried to open it, but that’s since stopped.
so the first thing i thought was that the filename was too long. However i shortened the file name and still had the same problem.
So far i’ve had precisely one file (and there are a LOT of files on this network drive) do this. I did verify that the filename being handed back in the error message is the same filename that i tried to open. also i made sure to check for potentially invalid characters.
Does anybody have any ideas ??
