Hi,

I'm trying to delete a file using System.IO.File.Delete(file).. however I keep getting the error :

System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path .(file path here). is denied.

I've checked the permissions of the file in question and the asp.net identity has full permissions and so should be able to delete the file?

Any reason this might be happening?

Is this file on the webserver?  the aspnet user has no permissions on other computers.

<identity impersonate="true" /> <-- make sure you DON'T have this in web.config

The file is on a secondary drive of the webserver. Identity impersonate is not on. The file(s) are actually put into into the location we are trying to delete from by the same webapplication.. so I don't really understand why there is an error when they come to be deleted later.

You wouldn't be using IIS 6.0 would you? (WinXP/Server 2003 runs it), IIS 6.0 doesn't use the aspnet user account, rather the "Network Service" Account.
