This code worked in VS 2008.

// Get most recent available file
            string strSourcePath = "D:\\inetpub\\stockpickermax\\Data\\";  // This is a folder on the host server

            if (!Directory.Exists(strSourcePath))
            {
                strSourcePath = "C:\\Develop\\Apps\\StockPro\\Data\\";
            }

The host folder was confirmed to exist.  I can copy files to the host folder using Cute FTP

What is inetpub?

This code worked for 3 years without a problem.

I just installed IIS for Windows 8.

Suggestions please?

Thanks,

It might be the C drive.

The default path for the WWWroot IIS

is c:\inetpub\wwwroot

If you're not finding the folder the application may not have permissions to it.

I just found out that I need to write # statements for an ftprequest.

Can you point me to a resource?

that's a completely different question.  

Not sure what you mean by "# statements" but here's how MS reccommends doing it:

Typo: Should be c# statements.  I can submit this as a new question.

I will try FtpWebRequest methods tomorrow and give you feedback.
