DataSource.Error: We got the IO error '59' while trying to access the path

I got this error when I try to get a table with all the filenames from a local server. I couldn't find any issue related or explanation about Error '59'. 

I really appreciate your ideas!

Hi @DaSan ,

It seems like there might be an issue with the path you're trying to access. Error '59' could indicate a problem with the network connection or a file permission issue.

Check your network connection and make sure it is stable and reliable. You can use the command to test the connectivity between your local server and the remote server.


Double-check that the path you're trying to access is correct and that you have the necessary permissions to access it. If the file path is a UNC path, you may need to use double backslashes (\\) instead of single backslashes () to escape the special characters.

Try accessing the file from a different computer or device to see if the issue persists.

Best Regards,

Thanks for your quick response.


I got access to the server (I have more queries running in the same server without issues). In this case, I am trying to get the list of files into a particular folder, but I am getting the error in some file (I suppose) but I am not able to identify the problem


Maybe the screen-shot can help to explain better the issue
