Access Drive Mapped to a Network Share

P: n/a
I am trying to accesss a Mapped Drive from my asp.net code running on IIS 6.0.

I am using a FileUpload control and fileUpload.SaveAs() to save the file to
the server. I want to save the file to a mapped drive that is mapped to a
share on the network. When I save to "C:\temp\myFile.txt it works but when I
save to Z:\temp\myFile.txt is will not work. I also want to copy, delete and
move these files.
I have found some pages on the net that mention this but none of the fixes
work.

Any help.

Thank you

Hi Jerry,

As for the mapped share drive problem, it is likely caused by the mapped
drive is not visible to your ASP.NET application. Because the mapped drive
is created under another interactive logon user while the ASP.NET
application runs under a dedicated process account.

Alexey has mentioned a thread which suggest that you use win32 api to
programmtically create the share drive in ASP.NET application(under the
ASP.NET process account) before you use it. In addition this, you can also
consider using Process Class to invoke "cmd.exe" and use "net use" command
to create the share.
