I'm downloading files from ftp site using vb .net but unfortunately I encountered exception - "Access to the path 'C:\samplefolder' is denied."
Don't know what exactly is the problem and as I searched the codes are good and running.. Please do help, I'll really appreciate it... Thanks and Godbless everyone!
