Hi VisualCron team,
I would like to ask you for help regarding issue "Exception in Task: Invalid URI: The format of the URI could not be determined." in case of transferring files to DropBox using WebDAV.

What I did:
1) At first I created WebDav connection with address https://dav.box.com/dav  (everything else, like timeout, I kept as it was predefined) and Basic Authentication
2) I also tested this WebDAV connection by hitting "Explorer" button in the connection manager and everything worked fine (I saw all the folders in the DropBox account)
3) I created "WebDav - upload" task and selected the WebDAV connection specified in point 1)
4) I was quit bit confused what to enter into "Target URL folder" - I entered these values: \, /, Test (since I have there folder test), https://dav.box.com/dav , https://dav.box.com/dav/Test 

But always when I run the task, it returns me: "Exception in Task: Invalid URI: The format of the URI could not be determined."

We use VisualCron (Client) 7.0.5

The main aim is to transfer new file (once it appears in specified folder) to the dropbox account.

Thank you in advance for your help and suggestions!

Actually, I solved the issue - only what needs to be done is to put the complete URL again to the "Target URL Folder" - in my case: https://dav.box.com/dav/Test/ 

Hopefully it helps other people ;-)

Best Regards!
