  • rootDirectoryPath
    Type: System.String
    The absolute path to the local file store for this provider. This is the folder that contains the files and subfolders to be synchronized.


Exception Condition

rootDirectoryPath is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).


replicaId is Empty, rootDirectoryPath is 0 length, rootDirectoryPath contains wildcards, or rootDirectoryPath does not exist.


fileSyncOptions is not in the FileSyncOptions enumeration.


Another provider instance was previously initialized with the same values for directory path and metadata file path, but has not yet been released.


This form of the constructor initializes the location of the metadata storage file and temporary files to be rootDirectoryPath. It initializes the path to save conflict loser files to a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic). It names the metadata storage file filesync.metadata.
