I have recently upgraded my hardware for WHS v1 and have virtualized my old desktops and have installed VMware server. I copied my fusion files to a shared folder called Virtual Machines and have relinked everything to the new vmware server on WHS.....everything works as expected including remote desktop. Question is that i have recently seen that i shouldn't be accessing d:\shares\Virtual Machines Directly(VM server is because that is where i copied the files) so should i move the directory outside of shares? D:\Virtual Machines\ for example? Once inside my virtual machine i have it set to save all files to a folder called Xp documents that i created on d:\shares\users\ so that the machine wouldn't have to be on for me to access files i create in there is this ok to do?
Also i have itunes running as a service and it works great and have installed itunes library updater and have used it to add files to itunes by using //home-server/Music (Default share).....Is this correct? Itunes itself only allows my to add d:\shares\Music which is how i had it until i read about not using d:\shares directly. I did a get info from within iTunes on a files and it shows //Home-server/Music/artist/some file.mp3
I am considering installing airvideo server again but if it doesn't allow me to use UNC paths should i use it? or can i map a drive and use that?
Thank you for any and all suggestions,

I can't speak to either VMWare Server or to iTunes, but I can confirm that you should never access the disk volumes directly on WHS v1. You should always use UNC pathnames to access files, even with software that is running locally on the server. This is required due to the way that Drive Extender works.
