    GetBigThumbnail returning "file is outside this filesystem's root"

    Hey there,

    We have an Umbraco application in a virtual directory and we've recently upgraded it from 7.14.0 to 7.15.4.

    After the upgrade, all thumbnails in umbraco (nodes' props and media dialogs) started to be fetched from


    which returns a 500 stating that "'/media/1001/imageName.jpg' is outside this filesystem's root" and so no images are displayed.

    However, if I change the originalImagePath querystring to %2F{myumbracoin_vDir}%2Fmedia%2F1001%2FimageName.jpg, the image is returned.

    The media itself and the website's frontend show all the images with no issues.

    Has anyone ever came across this issue? Is it an issue or is it some umbraco-inside-a-virtual-directory configuration that I'm missing?

    Thanks, Pedro
