How can I determine that the path exists?

If I have a path, for example \\server\FolderA", how can I make sure that
this path is accessible? There could be several reasons - server is down,
wrong folder spelling, permissions, etc..

There is File.Exists method but it only works with the files...

Thanks,

You could try System.IO.Directory.Exists.

Perhaps,

Directory.Exists?
