Can someone tell me what im doing wrong here? It seems to execute sometimes and other times it does'nt, im lost as to whats wrong and its driving me up the wall. Logically its corrrect isnt it? The out.prints get executed fine according to the if statements but the file commands dont get executed.

<%
 
 String Approved = request.getParameter("Approved");
       if(Approved.endsWith("s"))
       {
       out.print("yes");
       File file = new File("\\dir\\);
       File dir = new File("\\dir\\newdir");
       boolean success = file.renameTo(new File(dir, file.getName()));
       }
       else if(Approved.endsWith("o"))
       {
         out.print("no");
         File file1 = new File("\\dir\\);
         File dir1 = new File("\\dir\\newdir\\");
         boolean success = file1.renameTo(new File(dir1, file1.getName()));
       }
       else {}

>> File file = new File("\\dir\\);
