Cache files appearing in unauthorised location

edited January 2007 in Server
Hello

I have a strange problem with my webtiers

When the drive containing my cache directory is full (in this case the D
drive) the webtier cache files are being written to another drive (in this
case the C drive - Windows).

Has anyone encountered this? As far as I can see the webtiers do not have
the required permissions to write to the C drive so I cant see how they are
managing to

Cheers

Paul

    Strange. The WebTier internally calls the Delphi ForceDirectories routine
    (defined in SysUtils). The WebTier.CacheDirectory property is used to
    specify the location.

    Perhaps something that Windows does internally?

    I cant see how the webtier can get around windows security?

    Neither can I - my point is that we are using standard Delphi routines,
    such as ForceDirectories and CreateDirectory. Try creating an example
    application that uses those routines. Then run the application on the
    machine with full D drive and see what happens.
