path is a zero-length string, contains only white space, or contains one or more invalid characters as defined by InvalidPathChars.

ArgumentNullException

path is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

PathTooLongException

The specified path, file name, or both exceed the system-defined maximum length. For example, on Windows-based platforms, paths must be less than 248 characters, and file names must be less than 260 characters.

DirectoryNotFoundException

The specified path is invalid (for example, it is on an unmapped drive.

IOException

An I/O error occurred while creating the file.

The path parameter is permitted to specify relative or absolute path information. Relative path information is interpreted as relative to the current working directory. To obtain the current working directory, see GetCurrentDirectory.

This method is equivalent to the FileStream(String, FileMode, FileAccess, FileShare, Int32) constructor overload. If the specified file does not exist, it is created; if it does exist and it is not read-only, the contents are overwritten.

By default, full read/write access to new files is granted to all users. The file is opened with read/write access and must be closed before it can be opened by another application.
