Hi,

I recently bought a second hard disk for my music collection and I would
like to tell SlimServer to look for music files in both drives. The actual
music folder is M:\Music Folder and I would like to merge it with N:\Music
Folder. I've created a shortcut of N:\Music Folder in M:\Music Folder. It
is actually possible to access both drives when navigating with the remote
control but the SlimServer doesn't seems to actually list the second hard
drive files in his musical database. Any Idea? Thanks!

If you are running the slimserver as a service, this service has no knowledge of
share drives or mappings. These are user based, so you need to set up the
service to run as a specific user or turn off the service and run it once you
have logged in.

There are more details on this in several other posts, but I've not memorised
the details. you can search from here:
