View Full Version : Shortcuts in Music Folder Not Working

2007-04-15, 11:48
Just loaded 6.5.1. I have most of my music on one drive with the Music folder designated as the root. In addition, there is music on another local drive in three seperate folders.

In the past, I would simply put a shortcut to those directories in my Music Folder. Now, the music that is not actually IN the Music Folder is not being indexed AND I can not browse to it via Browse - Music Folder as in the past.

I have done a full reindex since creating the shortcuts.

Same problem here.

When the location of the additional music is in on the Desktop or in the My Documents folder, the slim server somehow links to the localservice path rather than the one for the user that you are. I moved the additional music to the root dir and everything went ok. Hope that helps.
