Is it possible for SlimServer w/ SB2 to access music across 2 or more drives?

I should add that I also have MusicMagic Mixer sofware...

Use a symbolic link (UNIX) or shortcut (Windows) to graft the second
disk into your music directory tree. That's the only way AFAIK.

Using the MMM integration, slimserver will have access to all the places MMM
does. Juts make sure that slimserver has proper access to those drives. If
they are mapped network drives, then the standard install of teh windows
service won't work becuase system services do not have access to mapped drives.
You would have to create a user account and run the service through that
account, or run the server manually.

If you choose not to rely on the integration, you can use windows shortcuts in
the music folder to link to the other drives. Slimserver will follow those
links to index the files on the other drives.
