Can't create shared folders RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, I'm a bit frustrated. I have been using WHS 1 for a few years just built a new system and installed WHS 2011.


    On my V1 system I had a bunch of shared folders for example

    dvd movies

    childrens movies

    new releases



    I am trying to create the same folders in 2011 but when I try to create a folder named for instance "Sci Fi Movies" I get an error that says I can't create a shared folder in a drive.


    The funny part is if I name the folder something simple like A it takes it with no problem.

    Now the other thing I'm not sure about is Libraries. Are these what replace the old shared folders and should media go into these folders within 1 large share?

    Sorry if this is a duplicate question I searched for "shares" and "folder" and did not see anything that matched.
