An edit session for this file crashed.
If this is the case, use ":recover" or "vim -r /etc/test/test.conf"
to recover the changes (see ":help recovery").
If you did this already, delete the swap file "/etc/test/.test.conf.swp" to avoid this message.
"/etc/test/test.conf" 164L, 4274C
This is the error that I get so it actually does specify the directory but there is no file there as described.
