Cannot Save into Cloud Drive


Every time I try to save into the Cloud Drive, I get the error:

"You don't have permission to modify files in this network location

Contact your administrator per permission to make these changes"

After hitting "Ok" a few times, eventually the file that I'm trying to save does save, but it is corrupted. For example, pictures won't show, text documents just turn into jumble up symbols and characters, etc.

I have checked the permissions, and made sure I have read and write access to the drive.

Also, manually moving files into the drive also does not work. I put some text documents into there and came to the following error:

"Cannot Open <my files directory address>

Make sure a disk is in the drive you specified"

Any ideas as to what I could have done wrong?

There's a lot of "it depends" going on here.

1) What is the path (directory) that you are trying to upload a file into.

2) What is the name of the file? (this is important because file names have to be valid "blob names".

3) How big is the file?

Tim thanks for your quick reply,
  1. I mapped my drive as letter Y so my directory is: Y:\Blob\data
  2. The pictures have Generic names like 1LGbv.jpg or IMG_0554.jpg the Documents contain phrases like "So and So's Files" (some have spaces in their titles) could this be causing it? Could you point me to a reference for Blob Names?
  3. Files are all pretty small, the biggest one is about 3 MB's I expect the biggest document to be no bigger then about 10 MB's
Thanks again for your input

Here's the reference to look at: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windowsazure/dd135715.aspx

Looks like it needs to be all lower case... needs to be letters and numbers, hyphens are sometimes-allowed :)

I think this might be the only issue.

Tim, thanks for your valuable input and the article. Unfortunately I'm still receiving the same errors. I cannot save or move files into the drive. I will grab a copy of the source code and see what I can do (probably nothing). Either way thanks for all your input, it is much appreciated.
