Default UNC Network Path

Right i am trying to access a network path. which i know exist. I have tested my code locally and it works but when i go to put it onto the server that is where the problem lies. The code that i am using is as follows if someone sees anything

'convert our source path into a physical path
                Dim sourcePath As String = "\\server\work\" & mJob.Insert(2, "-") & "\LvTest\notapproved"
                'get our destination path as physical
                Dim destPath As String = "\\server\work\" & mJob.Insert(2, "-") & "\LvLsr"
                    CopyDirectory(sourcePath, sourcePath + "\Archive", True, True)
                    CopyDirectory(sourcePath, destPath, True, False)
                Catch exc As System.Exception
                    'do nothing
                End Try
Private Sub CopyDirectory(ByVal sourcePath As String, ByVal destPath As String, ByVal overwrite As Boolean, ByVal archive As Boolean)
        Dim sourceDir As System.IO.DirectoryInfo = New System.IO.DirectoryInfo(sourcePath)
        Dim destDir As System.IO.DirectoryInfo = New System.IO.DirectoryInfo(destPath)
        'the source directory must exist for our code to run
        If (sourceDir.Exists) Then
            'if the destination folder does not exist, create it
            If Not (destDir.Exists) Then
            End If
            'loop through all the files of the current directory
            'and copy them if overwrite=true or they do not exist
            Dim file As System.IO.FileInfo
            For Each file In sourceDir.GetFiles()
                If (overwrite) Then
                    file.CopyTo(System.IO.Path.Combine(destDir.FullName, file.Name), True)
                    If (archive = False) Then
                    End If
                    If ((System.IO.File.Exists(System.IO.Path.Combine(destDir.FullName, file.Name))) = False) Then
                        file.CopyTo(System.IO.Path.Combine(destDir.FullName, file.Name), False)
                        If (archive = False) Then
                        End If
                    End If
                End If
            'loop through all the subfolders and call this method recursively
            'Dim dir As System.IO.DirectoryInfo
            'For Each dir In sourceDir.GetDirectories()
            '    If (dir.FullName <> Server.MapPath(tbxDestinationDir.Text)) Then
            '        CopyDirectory(dir.FullName, System.IO.Path.Combine(destDir.FullName, dir.Name), overwrite)
            '    End If
            'lblStatusMessage.Text = "Folder copied successfully"
            'lblStatusMessage.Visible = True
            'if source directory does not exist

        End If
    End Sub
Also i have tested to make sure the path is right from the server

Never mind i have figured out i had the Reponse.Redirect in a try catch block and that is what was causing problems so i just moved that out and it is working perfectly. I think
