this resolved bug and you do not yet see a matching new report.
In the current version of Mono, Path.GetPathRoot will hardcode the root path to '/' instead of actually checking the logical drive list to find the appropriate root directory:
So, for example, if Environment.GetLogicalDrives() looks like this...
... and we try to call new DriveInfo(Path.GetPathRoot("/home/dude/.local/share")), we get an Exception because "/" is not in the list of drive names:
For now I have a workaround in FNA that deals with this specific case; it's not ideal but it does fix the problem for us:
Thanks for the bug report, I noticed you use
if (storageRoot.StartsWith(drives[i]) &&
if your storageRoot is (for example) /tmp/foooo
and one of the drives is /tmp/foo - it will use it as root directory.
Closing as won't fix and it'd break existing code and makes us incompatible with netcore.
