Home Directory.GetFiles() does not look at parent folder
 In the past this worked fine, but not anymore. I used the line of code below to retrieve files from this location: C:\Users\ZAT\source\repos\KPItoolConsole\KPItoolConsole\input\patterns string[] files = Directory.GetFiles(@"input\patterns", "*.json", SearchOption.AllDirectories);  But now I get the following error when debugging: Could not find a part of the path 'C:\Users\ZAT\source\repos\KPItoolConsole\KPItoolConsole\bin\Debug\netcoreapp2.0\input\patterns' Can someone tell me how I can make it look at the parent folder again? This is for a Console .NET Core application. I think it stopped working after a Visual Studio update.
