Hi all,

I adapted a piece of code (recursive LINQ query) to generate a BindingList(of FileInfo) over a LAN. That works well on a local computer, and it seems to be fine on most of the remote network computers, too.

There seems to be a problem with the query, I guess, since I eventually get error message that "A part of the network path could not be found". This appears odd considering that the query reads paths first – and then can't find then...

(EDIT: I've checked that the path's throwing an error are existing and there's also no security issue with them. It must be something in the code)

In my strong believe that Alzheimer's wouldn't spread to Computers: Can someone please help me clear up the confusion as well as, if needed, correct the syntax?

Thank you very much,
Kind regards

What I have tried:

    For Each result As FileInfo In dirInfo.GetFiles(pattern).Select(Function(file) file).Where(Function(s) supportedExtensions.Contains(Path.GetExtension(s.Extension).ToLower()))
    Next result
     Function(d) Task.Factory.StartNew(
       Sub() InternalCollectFiles(d, pattern, queue))).ToArray())

Catch e As UnauthorizedAccessException
Catch e As SecurityException
Catch e As DirectoryNotFoundException
    MsgBox(String.Format("Error: {0}", e.Message))

Catch ex As Exception
    MsgBox(String.Format("Error in 'InternalCollectFiles': {0}", ex.Message))

End Try

When the error occurs see what path it is trying to access. Either the path is wrong as there is a code issue, or the path is correct but can't be accessed due to a security issue. We don't have access to your system or your network so we can't check these things for you.

Did you read it? It's a completely different question, not a repost.

Yeah, i've read that twice. The only differ is that you did not mention (in your previous question) that above code generates such of error message...

1. Looking for approach to extend a LINQ query
2. Trying to resolve a DirectoryNotFoundException

Completely different tasks. Have a (more) beautiful day.

Accordingly to the discussion in comments, there's few issues with your code, which may cause A part of the network path could not be found error. Conclusion is: you have to change a method you get files and folders information. Quite good explanation how to achieve that is here: c# - Asynchronously Enumerate Folders - Stack Overflow[^]

Additionally i'd suggest to read below articles too:
