When you past another File as first parameter to the File's constructor, it expect it to be a directory. Check the javadoc on the description of the constructor.

Please find the code button and ctrl-c ctrl-v when posting code, so we don't think you have an empty "catch" anywhere. I have added code tags so you can see how much easier your post is to read.

But well done sorting it out
