View Full Version : Can't change drive letter for Music Folder

I decided to set up a SS on file server, that runs on Windows Server 2003. The machine has couple of hard drives - one has been cleaned with purpose for music.

Now I wanted to set that drive to be my Music Folder in SlimServer setup.
Previously it was D, I wanted it to be E. But no!:
"New value for Music Folder rejected:
Oops - "E:" doesn't seem to be a valid directory. Try again."

After some clicking I went for some trickery.
I renamed the drives in Disk Manager (without touching the Music Folder), so that my music drive (previusly E) is now D. I started rescan, and it works fine.

Now for testing purposes I try to change Music Folder from D to E (so I could revert the letters in Disk Manager and be where I want to). Doesn't allow again!

What's going on?
I could run with messed up drive letters, but I don't see any reason that SS doesn't allow to change the Music Folder letter...

Any ideas?

Try "E:\". Shouldn't work with "D:" either, but maybe you included the backslash that time without realizing it.

Sorry to post with thrash question...

Of course "E:/" worked, but I found that out 3 minutes after I posted...
I took a suggestion straight from the screen where my Music Folder states "D:" not "D:/"...

I better go to sleep now and continue in the morning.
Thanks! (for patience ;-)

Sleep?

Sufficient doses of caffeine will cure that.
