BUG : Search Works on Mapped NetWork Drives but can't open.

The search works, the list even gets updated in real time when change or rename a file on the mapped network drive of my NAS.

Whenever I double click, the old everything didn't do anything, the new everything just opens my documents folder, and if I go from the Menu "Open file" or Open Path, it says path not available.

Have you added the mapped network drive as a folder index?
For example mapped Z: to \\server\share and have added the Z: folder index to Everything?

Try copying a filename's path to clipboard with Ctrl + Shift + C and pasting that into explorer's address bar, remove the quotes and hit enter, does this give the same error?

Could you please give an example of the path you are trying to open?

Try resetting Everything's context menu commands:
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the Context menu tab.
  • Click Restore defaults.

I opened the folders category, I removed then readded the same drives. Now it works.

I noticed that when I browsed for the folders, there was a red x mark on them, I had to click on them for the mark to disapear. This x mark wasn't on the explorer and the drives where mapped correctly.

My guess is this phenomenon can happen again on a restard and I have to readd the same folders with the same netword drive letter.
