Title: Error Code 161
Post by LRI on Jul 10th, 2012 at 5:59am
I am receiving error code 161. The specified path is invalid. Please try Default or Polling monitoring.

I am setting up a renaming task.

The drive is mapped and on the local network. When I test the Fast Monitoring is passes all tests and I can can see the test folders being created and deleted.

Any idea why this is happening? I have tried creating services to several different drives and error is the same.

I am trying to filter some emails out by error code but have been unable to find a list of the error codes so that I don't arbitrarily filter out something I may really want to see with a similar code.  This is the closest post to this subject I could find.  Any idea where that list would live?

I am sorry, but it is not possible for us to provide a list of error codes. WatchDirectory calls a lot of Windows functions and merely reports the errorcode returned by those functions.

A list of the standard windows error codes is available here:
