I am trying to put my music folders on a neworked drive and when I put the folder in SS and hit change it keeps coming up with the "opps" message "does not appear to be a valid folder."

I have Windows Home Server but I also tried it with a Win XP box. I have turned off my firewall. I have tried using both a mapped drive and UNC. I can browse the folders with no problem.

Any suggestions. Thanks.

I don't think that should be a problem, I am not an expert in Windows, but in Mac or Linux or any other Unix, al lyou have to do is to put a valid symbolic link to the folder, if your system can see it as a normal folder, SB should do that too.

It was a permission issue. The default "user" for the service running SS is an account that does not have permission for network access. Once I changed this it worked fine. You need to go into the service secion off of Comp Admin.
