Issues accessing remote drive

Post by JCELENA » Tue Nov 17, 2009 4:55 pm

Hi there!

I am writing because I recently discovered this wonderful tool. I have been looking for something like this for ages.

I work in a LAN server-client environment. The thing is that I created and ETP/FTP server on the server end and I connected to the server in the client machine but I cannot access the folders and files that Everything shows it has found. I think that the problem has to do with how is the path displayed on the client machine.

In the server machine I search for the XXX directory and in the results window this is what I see:

Name Path
XXX D:\

But in the client machine when I search for the XXX director, this is what I see:

Name Path
XXX \\Server\D

And when I double click XXX on the client machine Windows reports that the path "\\Server\D" does not exist.

Can anyone help me sort this out?

Thanks a million,

JC

"Everything" 1.2.1.371 uses fixed network paths.
You will have to share the C: drive on the server as C, D: drive as D, etc..

Or, you might like to try the latest alpha "Everything" version 1.2.1.442a which uses the admin shares C$,D$,etc...
