Description Miha Markic 2016-07-21 14:43:16 UTC
Consider this 
Directory.GetFiles("ROOT", "something/else/*", SearchOption.AllDirectories)

This method will most likely fail, since GetFiles try to apply search pattern to every subdirectory of root, 
i.e. it will try
ROOT/something/something/else/*, not just ROOT/something/else/*.

Actual behavior: DirectoryNotFound exception is thrown.
Expecting all subdirectories of ROOT/something/else/ are traversed, not those of ROOT/.

.net version works as expected.

Observed on Android, but I guess it is mono library issue.

I'm also seeing this issue using our .NET Standard lib.
Comment 2 Rodrigo Kumpera 2016-07-23 00:14:38 UTC
Test case:

using System;
using System.IO;

class Foo { 
	static void Main () {
		try {
			if (Directory.Exists ("testdir"))
				Directory.Delete ("testdir", true); 
			Directory.CreateDirectory ("testdir");
			Directory.CreateDirectory ("testdir/something");
			Directory.CreateDirectory ("testdir/something/else");
			File.WriteAllText ("testdir/something/else/file", "hello");
			var r = Directory.GetFiles("testdir", "something/else/*", SearchOption.AllDirectories);
			Console.WriteLine (r.Length == 1);
			Console.WriteLine (r[0] == Path.Combine ("testdir", "something", "else", "file"));
		} finally {
			Directory.Delete ("testdir", true);
