Network Drive issues

Post by mwg47x »

Hi folks.
Opened MMW today and album art isn't showing for any album.
It was there last night...today nothing.

Started looking around and noticed MMW got confused over the location of my music.
I have it on a mapped network drive; a DFS share to be exact, spread across a few Windows servers.
Every server has a complete copy of the share via replication.

Anyways MMW lost the drive letter.
If I do a locate missing files it shows the current path as:
?:\music
It should read Y:\music

Should I just hard map it to a particular server name?
For instance:
\\server name\data\music
Do you think it might behave better set up like that?

A UNC Path as you suggest is preferred as it bypasses the problem where Windows may re-assign the driveID for a mapped drive (it shouldn't).

You can use the following Addon to resolve the current situation: http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewto ... =2&t=63823
