How do I fix “invalid directory” error?

If  the  output  file  path  is  LAN(Local Area Network) or  NAS(Network Attached Storage )  path, you  will  get “invalid directory” error, and the  method  below will help solve that.

1. Open the Computer window by choosing StartComputer.
2. Click the Map Network Drive button on the toolbar to open the Map Network Drive dialog box.
To be able to map a network folder to a local drive, the folder must be shared and you must have network  permission to access  it  on the other computer.
3. Select an unused drive letter for the network folder in the Drive drop-down list.
4. In the Folder text box, enter the network share path name. When you’re done, click OK.
You can type the path like the \\server\share example shown, or you can click the Browse button and locate the  shared  network folder. If you want to select a previously mapped folder, you can select it from the drop-down list of previously entered path names.
5. (Optional) Select the Reconnect at Logon check box to tell Windows to map this same drive every time you  start  the  computer.
Also, if you’re not an administrator, select the Connect Using Different Credentials check box. Then  ask an  administrator  on  your network  to enter their user-name and password in the Windows Security dialog box that appears before you click OK.
6. Click the Finish button.
When you click Finish, Windows creates the network drive and automatically  opens it  in  Windows  Explorer. After that, you can access any of the folder’s sub-folders and files by simply opening the network drive in the Computer window.
(Note:Windows 7 indicates a mapped network drive by automatically assigning  it to the Network Location  category in the Computer window.)

If you are still having difficulties after trying all of that, contact us with a screenshot of the error message.
