Ok, I know about the @ prefixing the string to use literal strings. But nothing i am doing seems to work, and I suspect the double backslashes in the path to be the problem with the function. Please could someone advise me on how i could deal with the double backslashes so that aDirectory looks like this when i am debugging the method.
