"The URL '#doc lib#/#filename#' is invalid. It may refer to a nonexistent file or folder, or refe


Hi All,

We have a SharePoint web farm with 3 WFEs. We have MOSS 2007 64bit Enterprise. On one of the WFEs, when we try to upload a document, the user gets the following error:

The URL '#doc lib#/#filename#' is invalid.  It may refer to a nonexistent file or folder, or refer to a valid file or folder that is not in the current Web. 

It is happening for all document libraries. However, if the user is on the other 2 WFEs, the error does not happen. The WFEs are patched to the same level & we do not know why this error is happening. Can anyone shed light on this issue?

Below is the log from the sharepoint logs before the error happens with the actual error line highlighted:

Programmatically delete a .webpart file from wpcatalogs folder from an IIS website


We are using a third party wsp in our solution which directly adds the web parts into the web application store rather than the web part gallery(References to them are present in IIS site's wpcatalog directory). We want to remove these web part files so that the users will not be able to add these web parts to pages directly. Or any other modification so that users will not be able to add these directly. Is there a way we can do this programmatically?

Method/Way to know whether a input path of FilesSystem contains any Child file/folder or not

Hi,I am looking for a Method/Way to know whether a input path of FilesSystem contains any Child file/folder or not. To know it currently I am using "Directory.GetFileSystemEntries(Path).Count" and checking if count > 0 then returning True else False. For this first method calculates all the files and folder and then return status to me but I want to exit out as soon as my method gets first element(file/folder) in specified path. Because above method is timing out when my input path contains more than 1 million files. I just need to check whether input folder path contains any child file/folder or not. I have tried to use Win32 API also but on ther server it is crashing so I donot want to use that solution. In .NET any method or way is present to know it. Please suggest me.

Web Folder problem : This file cannot be saved to this location because there is no connection to th

When I check out a Word 2007 document from a list, I cannot save it back to the server.  I get:   This file cannot be saved to this location because there is no connection to the server.  Check your network connection and try again.   I am using a Virtual Machine (Virtual PC).  I have the Microsoft Loopback adapter installed.    The server has a static IP address and is a domain controller. I am able to access the web folder through Windows Explorer.   How do I set up Office, Sharepoint and Webdav so that I can check files out of sharepoint and save them back, on a virtual machine?

using application configuration file in AppData special folder

Hi! So I understand it is a best practice to save the application configuration files under the AppData folder, rather than in Program Files, since UAC will restrict write acces to the Program Files folder, which is fine. Now, saving the configuration file to another location is no problem, using the SaveAs method. However, when I load the application, I expect some settings to be read. From what I know, this is done either using direct calls to the ConfigurationManager class, either initializing a Configuration object. For the first case, a example is this: if (ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["Title"] != null) { this.Title = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["Title"]; titleTextBox.Text = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["Title"]; } For the second case, I would use it like this: Configuration config = ConfigurationManager.OpenExeConfiguration( ConfigurationUserLevel.None); string setting = config.AppSettings.Settings["Title"].Value.ToString(); So, if the application runs in the Program Files folder, an exception is thrown when I save the file. However, if I save the file using SaveAs and save it to AppData folder, obviously, when loading, the settings are not loaded from the AppData folder, but from the configuration file existing in the Program Files folder. One way to solve

Dealing with a changing folder value in Foreach File Enumerator

I have a Foreach Loop component that loops through files in a folder.  That folder doesn't exist on the server where I'm going to move the package to.  Within the Foreach Loop Editor, the Enumerator Configuration Folder doesn't appear to be able to take a variable value.  Also, it doesn't appear that there's a "Folder" property in the expressions property list. Is there some way I can use a variable value for this foreach file loop's folder location?  I need to move the package to the dev server and then eventually to the prod server.  I don't mind manually opening the *.dtsx file on each server to change the values accordingly, but I would think there's a better way. Any advice you could offer would be greatly appreciated.  The dev and prod servers have SQL Server 2008 R2 with SSIS 2008 R2 on Windows 2008 Server. Thanks, everybody.

DataView upload save file goes nowhere. How do you set a folder to upload to? Dynamically?

I have a Dataview bound to Document Library with the New Document button enabled. It apears to upload but can't find the files anywhere. I don't have a Shared Document folder. How and where do you set where to upload the file? A specific folder would be nice and If I could make it dynamic tied to QueryString Ideal. Going a bit further, the library I'm bound to has many 3 digit numeric folders that are dynamically created when entries are added to another list. The page that is calling my dataview has a querystring that will tie into the folder I want to drop files into. Just wondering how I can dynamically set the upload destination. Currently this is the generated code: <input type="button" value="Save" name="btnSave" onclick="javascript: {ddwrt:GenFireServerEvent('__commit')}" /> <a href="javascript: {ddwrt:GenFireServerEvent('__cancel;dvt_1_form_insertmode={1}')}">Upload File</a> I have some other code that calls the classic file upload page that is working perfectly, but I'd really prefer the clean and simple UI of the DataView control if I could make it work. Thanks!

Opening a PowerPoint presentation fails with error "invalid path or file name".

When you go to a Document Library and try to open the presentation, PowerPoint opens, but then you get the error "The path or file name for "file URL" is invalid.  Please check that the path and file name are correct."I installed MOSS/WSS SP2 about 2 weeks ago, this happened once or twice before then, but I now know of about a half-dozen presentations that won't open.There is a way to get the file to open, if you hit the drop-down next to the file and select Send To and Download a Copy, you can save or open it from there.If you try browsing to if from within PowerPoint, it won't open either, and will also not open in Explorer View.  We have replaced the file, saved as a different name, etc. with no luck.Using both IE 7 and IE 8 and both XP Pro and Vista Business workstations.Any ideas out there?Thanks,Rusty

Scheduled Folder and File cleanup


Does moss have a built in way to schedule file and folder deletion besides "disposition approval"? (i.e. every 90 days) If not built in, what options are out there? Thanks.

Folder's file count getting mismatched



I have a folder, which contains sub folders. For example: Doc is the root folder. Inside it has 2 sub folders named Doc1 and Doc2.

Doc1 contains 2 sub folders - fol1 and fol2.

"fol2" folder does not contain any files, where as "foc1" has a file in it. I am trying to get the count of files modified in last 30 days. Against each of the sub folders,and the corresponding parent folder i want to show the count of modified items. I am getting the sub folders count, but that count is not getting updated to the parent folder.

I am missing a small part of updation, but not sure where it is. This is the code i have used:


public static void GetOpenItems()
SPFolder folder = list.RootFolder;
int mouas = 0;

if (folder != null && folder.Name.CompareTo("Forms") != 0)
//Get Individual Folder Total
 foreach (SPFolder subFolder in folder.SubFolders)
  if (subFolder.Name.CompareTo("Forms") != 0)
  mouas = CountFilesInFolder(subFolder, System.DateTime.Now.AddDays(-30));
  subFolder.Item["Files_Count"] = mouas;

static int CountFilesInFolder(SPFolder folder, DateTime startDate)
