    DirectoryEntry GetFile method (http://docs.phonegap.com/en/1.7.0/cordova_file_file.md.html#DirectoryEntry) should accept both relative and absolute paths. However it currently it only accepts the file name:
    // root path = "c:/Users/user/Documents/Telerik/Icenium/Simulator/Storage/Temporary/
    1) This works if i put the file directly in the root:
    filesystem.root.getFile( "myFile.txt " ... )
    2) This doesn't work - i put file in a subfolder:
    filesystem.root.getFile( "mydir/myFile.txt " ... )
    3) Absolute path doesn't work as well:
    filesystem.root.getFile( "c:/Users/myuser/Documents/Telerik/Icenium/Simulator/Storage/Temporary/mydir/myFile.txt " ... )

    Hello,

    We are aware of this bug in the Simulator related to the File API and we have it logged for further investigation.
    Notice that the create flag of the getFile method does not work properly either, but only in the Simulator.
    Please accept our apologies and stay tuned for the fix.
    Thank you.

    Regards,
