Network Folder path shows as Network\{name}

Post by therube » Mon Jun 21, 2021 8:31 pm

If you add a Folder Index that points to a (UNC) "network" path, the Path as shown in Everything displays as:
Network\NAS
(with Network literally being the word, 'Network').

Should it show 'Network'?
Rather then (UNC-like) \\NAS ?

Does this issue only occurs when you select the root network name?

eg: The issue occurs when you select
\\server (changes to Network\server)

eg: There is no issue when you select
\\server\share (stays the same as \\server\share)


I have put on my TODO list to replace Network\server with \\server
Both should work, \\server would be much faster as it would avoid using the virtual Network path.

Correct. I added the root, \\NAS.

And as a test, when I added, \\NAS\Music, that then showed:
\\NAS\Music\Jethro Tull
(In addition, since now duplicated, Network\NAS\Music\Jethro Tull.)

Regarding
Network\
(which I'm not familiar with)...

I'll just note that files (in different directory trees ? containing spaces ? some other criteria ? [not really sure]) may not necessarily be able to be dragged or opened.

Code: Select all

C:\BIN>xxhsum.exe Network\NAS\music\_from_USR\_Sonny\swingera.net\twooclockHJ.mp3 "Network\NAS\music\MU
SIC - done\ATB\Two Worlds (Disc 2)\09 Endless Silence.mp3"

Error: Could not open 'Network\NAS\music\_from_USR\_Sonny\swingera.net\twooclockHJ.mp3':
No such file or directory.
Error: Could not open 'Network\NAS\music\MUSIC - done\ATB\Two Worlds (Disc 2)\09 Endless Silence.mp3':
No such file or directory.

C:\BIN>
Where the same files, referenced as \\NAS\{filename} can.

Code: Select all

C:\BIN>xxhsum.exe \\NAS\music\_from_USR\_Sonny\swingera.net\twooclockHJ.mp3 "\\NAS\music\MUSIC - done\A

This is expected for virtual paths.
Most programs will not work with virtual paths.

Everything 1.5.0.1265a adds native support for \\server (and avoids using virtual paths).

Please remove the Network\NAS share and readd the share as \\NAS in Tools -> Options -> Folders.

Adding each share is recommended (eg: \\NAS\share1, \\NAS\share2, \\NAS\share3, ...)
