Desparate to write to the root

I am in a pickle with my new ISP where I can not create a text file in my root directory.  I need this so I can begin debugging my service.

Could somneone post the smallest of web services (in C#) which solely write a text file in the root directory.  I assume I would need to assign the namespace to be my URL.  But would love some support.

    But you also say you need a web service that writes a file. If they dont permit you to do that why are you looking to write to a file?

    I just found out that shared hosting was blocking me from writing to root!  It's been killing me all day!

    So I'm switching to a virtual dedicated server.

    thanks for the help,
