I am trying to load a python script into sage notebook, with commands load(''), and attach('').

But I am getting the error: IOError: did not find file

The file is there! I am using sage 8.6 on Windows 10.

sage: load('C:\\Program Files (x86)\\MyJournal\\Images\\')

UPDATE Sage loads the file from my home directory.

I seems that Sage just does not have access to Program Files directory.

IOError                                   Traceback (most recent call last)

    233             break
    234     else:
--> 235         raise IOError('did not find file %r to load or attach' % filename)
    237     ext = os.path.splitext(fpath)[1].lower()

IOError: did not find file 'C:\\Program Files (x86)\\MyJournal\\Images\\' to load or attach

This is a feature of Jupyter: if DIR is the directory from which the Jupyter server was launched, then Jupyter can only access files inside DIR and its subdirectories.

I will add, as a general principle of Windows usage, please do not store personal files under C:\Program Files.
