You can even move whole folders and their contents with the SPFolder.MoveTo method. Very nice. Unfortunately, these do not work across site collections. where as use of RootFolder.Files.Add ...

You might not have permissiosns to see that file. You should also add a check for file existence like : SPFile u = l.RootFolder.Files.Add(l.RootFolder.Url + "/" + f.Name, f.OpenBinary(), true); if (l.Exists) { l.RootFolder.Update(); l.Update(); w.Update(); }
