    Access to ... \\machine\share\System Volume Information' is denied.

      I am using APIs to create/run QVS distribution tasks.


      I am using UNC to specify the location of the file to be used.


      Every time I create the task I get the error message from the QV Distribution service in the event log


      GetFiles failed. Exception=System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path '\\machine\share\System Volume Information' is denied.

         at System.IO.__Error.WinIOError(Int32 errorCode, String maybeFullPath)

         at System.IO.Directory.InternalGetFileDirectoryNames(String path, String userPathOriginal, String searchPattern, Boolean includeFiles, Boolean includeDirs, SearchOption searchOption)

         at System.IO.Directory.GetFiles(String path, String searchPattern, SearchOption searchOption)

         at System.IO.Directory.GetFiles(String path)

         at QlikTech.FileSystem.IO.Directory.GetFiles(String i_Path, String i_FileNameRegExp)


      BUT ... it does NOT seem to hinder the creation/running of the task.


      I have set admin rights for QVService, the share etc.


      I have found this on the web:

      "In the root of every drive is a folder called "SystemVolume Information". If your drive is NTFS, the permissions on the folderare set so not even administrators can get in there.

      so setting admin rights won't do any good.


      Does anyone have any idea

      1) What QV Distribution Service is doing

      2) Why QV Distribution Service is generating an error .. but without any ramifications?


      THis happens with 10 SR1.
