Problems in connecting to Network Drives?

Post by Flourgrader » Sat Jun 19, 2021 4:41 pm

Hi,
I am running Everything Version 1.5.0.1263a (x64)
On a Windows 10 version 21H1 PC .
I have 2 network drives Mapped to my PC and Everything can see them. No problems at all.
I have other network drives that are NOT mapped to my PC.
I view these drives through windows Network settings.
Which works just fine!
My problem is when I try to add these NONE Mapped network drives, I get ERROR messages after I have added the Host address
Photo supplied for clarification:
I have done it this way:
Menu option Tools>Options>Network Index> Add>Host
\\address\volume\
Am I entering the info incorrectly or is this option still on the TODO List?
Thanks.

Hi,
I came back to answer my own question. :D
For anyone who has read my post, this is how to do it
Menu>Tools>Options>Folders>Add Custom
Enter into the dialogue Box the Path:
Your Network Address IP addresses
\\192.168.1.125\Shared_Folder
Shared Folder is whatever folder you’re sharing on the remote networked PC.
Or use the Add... and navigate to your shared folder,select it,then Apply it,OK it
Then it appears in your list of drives.
Enjoy:

Or from Windows Explorer open \\ROUTER ?
