Why does this happen on windows 2008 IIS server + php 5?

This is the exact error I get;
[21-Sep-2011 11:32:01] PHP Warning:  filesize() [<a href='function.filesize'>function.filesize</a>]: stat failed for C:\output\1024364.jpg

Before I move the file from the tmp directory, I check its filesize there succesfully, so the function is working.

And I can read the jpg and delete it in the same script, so permissions should be enough to stat it.

Its really confusing me! Thank you

--

1) What my script does is, it checks the filesize in the tmp directory and save it in $filesize
2) Then I move the file to c:\output directory
3) Compare filesize() with $filesize
4) read the jpg and delete it afterwards.

Everything works except step 3.

don't move the file...use the copy command and once done unlink the temp directory...

i suppose it may not be finding the image to execute the filesize function...or may its the temp file which doesn't actually moving the file format

Well technically, I have to move it.

There's another external program outside php that does something with the image, but doesnt change the filesize.

But it doesnt solve my problem either way; the file is there 100%. I read and delete the file in the same script, so why cant I filesize it. That is my problem.

Somehow after the file has been moved in the c:\output directory, it is still not available for filesize().

I found out by adding a is_readable() while loop before doing filesize()
