mapping drives RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have installed Windows Home Server and I now want to share the data folder for an application on the server. I have tried mapping the network drive on the folder but when I follow the installation instructions for the application it cannot see the mapped drive where I wish to create the shared data folder, it can only see the drives on the local workstation I am using. But the mapped network drive is visible and can be access from ‘Computer’ under ‘Network’

    i am using Windows 7.

    Please can you help.

  • If I understand correctly, you have mapped e.g. Drive F: on your workstation to a share on your server. Then you want to share a folder on drive F:? You can't do that; it isn't possible to share a folder which is on a network location.
