How to stay on the root directory

Hi,

I have a property that looks like the following:

public static string RootDirectory
{
   get
   {
      string current = Directory.GetCurrentDirectory();
      string root = Directory.GetDirectoryRoot(current);
      return root;
   }
}

Somewhere while the program goes through its progression, the directory points to a mapped network drive called "Q:".  I would like to know how to remain on my root directory in which the application is running (in this case the C:\ drive).

Either don't change directories in your program, or store the directory when your program starts to a static, and find your root off of that STORED directory rather than the current.
