Hi
I'm considering purchasing this box.
I have a wireless network and my music is on 4 different hard drives connected to my computer; 2 internal and 2 external.
I have about 800 gigs of music, most of which are .flac files.
Will the Squeezebox 3 be able to see all of my music on all the different drives?
thanks

Yes !

In the music folder you indicate to slimserver, use simply shortcuts pointing to the other folders containing your music files...

This is ok. Define one of the drives as the source for your music
collection. Then put shortcuts (Windows) or symlinks (X) to the other
drives in that main drive. Slimserver will follow them and find the
collection on the other drives.
