    Well, curious to me at least. Hopefully it will be a simple "aha" to someone out there.

    There is a particular server from which I ftp files every day. I have to get the files from a number of different directories/subdirectories in the filesystem.

    Most times things work smoothly.
    When I change to a particular directory I
    typically see the subdirectories presented as

    <page icon> Directory_name

    Sometimes, I will see the following for the sub directories.

    <icon> <date> <time> <dir> <directory_name>
    for example,
    <icon> 06-14-01 02:30PM <dir> NJ

    At that point I cannot open the directory, and get the response, "The system cannot find the specified file"

    So far, if I go back to the server sometime later in the day, it's OK.

    It's not always the same directories, and it's not always "unavailable" for a predictable amount of time. Sometimes I get re-access rather quickly, sometimes not.

    I know all this is very vague, but hopefully someone can start pointing me in the right direction.

    I have relayed this situation to my "technical" contact at the company who maintains the server in question, but have, so far, received only the equivalent of "blank stares" and quizzical head-scratching.

    Any recommendations on how to pursue discovering the "nature" of what's going on is appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Could you post the contents of the Fetch Transcript window after you see the problem? Choose "Fetch Transcript" from the Window menu to reveal the transcript.
