Can a FileSystemWatcher control in a WIndows Service watch a shared network drive? The Service crashes and then when Visual Studio debugs it, I get a message stating that the directory is invalid.  I know it is a valid location since I used the browse button to get to it.  But I also copied the path and went to file explorer and it went to the correct path.
