The path specified cannot be used at this time. Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070094

Scenario:
This morning i was trying to create a new Webapplication for some testing and got the following gift,

Error: The path specified cannot be used at this time. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070094)

Solution:
Dont laugh at this one, but I knew I am dealing with Microsoft ( Windows 2k3 and MS Sharepoint ), so that's what i did to resolve it.

1) IISReset or Recycling of the application pool
2) Restart the SharePoint Timer Services
3) Restart the server ( I was on dev , so not a big deal for me )

:-)

Thanks Sandeep,
Interestingly that helped me too.
In my case I just restarted the IIS and the SPTimer.
(Rebooting the server was not an option)

Thanks Sandeep.
This helped me as well.
In my case I had to restart IIS and SPTimer.

The first two steps worked perfectly for me too.
