comment Correct usage of File.Exists within dataGridView data row
I figured it out this morning, part of the issue was the watch window was re-escaping my string. using the text visualizer proves this case. But yes there was a logic flaw later. Thanks for the reply!

Was not aware of the text visualizer but it seems very useful. Thanks for the heads up!

comment Retrieving file path with escape character from database in dataGridView DataRow
Thats a bit frustrating, I rely on the watch for checking alot of variables guess I will have to re-evaluate what I am looking at. But I had assumed that was the reason my code was not working correctly as it was never finding the correct file location. Guess I have more work to do

I got an error about a newline in a constant so i changed it to string replaceWith = @"\"; string Location = row["file_location"].ToString().Replace("\\", replaceWith); However the debug watch still shows it with double backslahes it doesnt seem to be replacing it

comment Correct usage of File.Exists within dataGridView data row
I have noticed actually that the string value it is holding when i inspect it in the debug auto window actually is using a double backslash in the directory structure of the filepath i assume its adding an additional slash as an escape character but its not store in the db with an additional slash so i am unsure how to rectify that

The file does exist on my end, I figured out the break also. When it populates the datagridview it highlights the second item in the list regardless of whether the file exists or not and then ignores all the other records
