This project is read-only.

Can't see files inside folders


I can see and download only files in root Isolated Sotrage folder. I see folders created by myself, but can see files that I wrote to it by code or using WP7 Isolated Storage Explorer GUI tools.
Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate SP1
Windows Phone SDK 7.1
Windows Phone 7 Isolated Storage Explorer beta
This is all on a Windows 7 Ultimate machine (x86 and SP1).

I have the same problem..
Does anyone working to fix it?
I'm new to Codeplex.. So I voted for this issue.. What does the voating means?
That the issue will get a higher priority?

I am having the same problem. I just spent three hours picking my code apart only to find that the files really ARE there but that it's a bug in the explorer. :(

Same here. I can only see the top level folder.
This is what I tried doing:
Create a file "Settings.xml"
Create a Folder "Temp"
Create a folder under "Temp" - "Temp/Temp1"
Create a file under "Temp1" - "Temp/Temp1/Temp2.txt"

I am only able to see "Settings.xml" and "Temp". Although Temp2.txt and Temp1 exist (checking it using ISF.FileExist()), it not displayed by the IS Explorer.
This is an essential feature, any help will with regards to the timeline for a fix will be appreciated.

Would it be possible to get this tagged as high impact? This is core functionality that is not working.

Well, we all are having this problem...

I found the error in the assembly code (thanks, dotPeek...):

you are searching for files using:

isoFile.GetFileNames(directory + "/")

but the "*" is missing , so it has to be:

isoFile.GetFileNames(directory + "/*")

The sames goes for directories !

This is a serious bug and one that has probably wasted a lot of developer hours!

please, use the zip file attached, the problem is fixed regarding sub-directories & files at a lower level.

I have also included a modified version of the SampleApplication for tests purpose.

Enjoy !
