# File output Node not working

So for whatever reason the File output node doesn't work for me, doesn't matter if i do render image or render animation I've double checked that the output folder actually exists, but nothing happens. Am I missing something obvious?

• Check the permission on the folder. Also, try using forward slash / instead of backslash \  in the folder path ex: c:/test/ – Bruno Apr 1 '20 at 13:37
• @Bruno I've tried both version of slashes, I also tried browsing into the folder using the gui with no luck. as far as I'm aware there is no special permission on this folder and I also tried to change it to a folder that takes the rendering output using the regular way. – drulludanni Apr 1 '20 at 13:54
• Do you have multiple render layers and this one might not be included? – Bruno Apr 1 '20 at 14:13
• @Bruno nope, I had 2 layers but deleted one of them and saw no change – drulludanni Apr 1 '20 at 15:51
