I’ve checked the path to the file when it is written and it matches exactly to the path when I try to read it. In the read routine, I check for the file’s existence and it says it doesn’t. But when I write the file and immediately check for the file’s existence (in the same handler), it says it exists. I’ve checked the path with the debugger and the path it writes to is exactly the same as the path it looks for the file in.
